CIT Confirms Order for 50 A320neos

August 10, 2011, 5:58 AM

The backlog for Airbus’s A320neo family seems to grow on a daily basis of late, most recently with today’s conversion of an MOU signed in June during the Paris Air Show by CIT Aerospace to a firm order for 50 of the re-engined narrowbodies. Airbus plans to start deliveries of the airplanes to CIT in 2016, following delivery of another 32 Airbus jets the leasing company ordered in June 2007.

The latest deal brings the total number of Airbus aircraft ordered by CIT since 1999 to 237–191 A320s (including the 50 A320neos), 41 A330s and five A350 XWBs. Airbus has delivered 144 of the airliners to date.
