China Southern Airlines has expressed its intention to sell seven Boeing 757-200 aircraft, through an invitation letter to bid.

All seven aircraft are powered by Rolls-Royce RB211-636E4 engines, and will be sold under an “as is, where is” condition, says the Chinese carrier.

Interested bidders may also provide the airline with leases of new narrowbody aircraft such as the Airbus A320 Boeing 737-800 series, on the proportion of 1:1.5.

Parties who wish to bid for the aircraft will have to submit their proposals to the airline's Guangzhou headquarters by 22 April, while acceptance and delivery of the aircraft must be completed by end of 2014, it adds.

The seven aircraft bear the MSNs 25598, 25888, 25889, 25890, 26153, 25156 and 27260. The oldest (MSN 25598) was built in 1992 while the youngest (MSN 27260) was built in 1994. Flightglobal’s Ascend Online database also indicates they are all owned by the airline.
