Operating lessor SMBC Aviation Capital has closed a purchase and leaseback transaction covering one new Airbus A320 with Iberia.
The aircraft (MSN 5692) is equipped with CFM56-5B6/3 engines, Flightglobal's Ascend online database shows. It was delivered on 17 July.
SMBC Aviation Capital also placed a new A320 (MSN 5668) from its orderbook with China Eastern Airlines and a new Boeing 737-800 (MSN 39929) with Garuda Indonesia. The aircraft is the second of a six-aircraft deal with the Indonesian carrier.
The lessor also placed a second-hand 737-800 with Globus. Ascend says the 1998-vintage aircraft was previously operated by Air Berlin.
