China's Bank of Communications has financed a pair of Airbus A320s for Shenzhen Airlines.

The aircraft (MSNs 4845, 4897) aircraft are equipped with International Aero Engines' V2527-A5 engines.

Both were delivered last month to the Chinese carrier.

Last year Bank of Communications Financial Leasing (Bocomm Leasing) financed two deliveries for Shenzhen Airlines under sale and leaseback transactions. The first aircraft closed in June, the second in December.

Shenzhen Airlines has 11 new A320s deliveries scheduled for 2013, according to Flightglobal's Ascend online database. The Chinese carrier also has nine Boeing 737-800s in 2013.
