ICBC Leasing acquired a new Boeing 737-800 aircraft through a purchase and leaseback agreement with China Southern Airlines.

The aircraft, MSN 38963, was delivered last week to China Southern. It is equipped with CFM56-7B26E engines.

ICBC Leasing placed two new 737-800 aircraft on lease to China Southern earlier this year. The aircraft are part of an original order placed by Air Berlin. Slots on four 737-800s and six Airbus A320s were sold to ICBC Leasing as part of a 10-aircraft deal.

China Southern sold a new 737-800 on delivery earlier this year to Nomura Babcock & Brown and leased the aircraft back for a period of 12 years.
