Irish lessor Avolon has confirmed an order for 75 Airbus A320neos and 25 A321neos in the single largest order for aircraft from the European manufacturer ever placed by the Dublin-headquartered company.

The latest agreement takes Avolon’s cumulative orders with Airbus to 284 aircraft (240 single-aisles and 44 widebodies) including the A321neo, the A330neo and the A350.

“Our order for 100 A320neo family aircraft … reflects our ambition to become the global leader in the sector,” Avolon CEO Dómhnal Slattery said.

“We continue to see robust demand from our customers for the A320neo family globally. This is consistent with our own market research and global fleet forecast. This order affirms our belief in the medium-term market outlook and the strong growth prospects for our business and our shareholders,” he said.
