Operating lessor AWAS has closed commercial financing on an Airbus A330-300, which was delivered to AirAsia X on a long-term operating lease, with two European banks.
DVB Bank and Natixis acted as co-arrangers and co-lenders on the financing, says DVB, which confirms the transaction.
The aircraft was delivered new this month
Separately, AWAS indicated on its second-quarter earnings call that the lessor will take delivery of 10 aircraft from its forward order pipeline with Airbus and Boeing during the remainder of this year. It will also take 10 aircraft that it has committed to purchase in the trading sector during this time.
