Air Macau has received its first Airbus A321neo aircraft, which is on lease from Air Lease Corporation (ALC).

The airline’s brand new aircraft, registered as B-MBQ, is powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1133G engines and left the German Airbus production site in Hamburg on Saturday morning.

Air Macau currently operates an all-Airbus fleet of A319, A320 and A321 airplanes. Earlier this year, the carrier took delivery of its first Airbus A320neo aircraft. Additionally, Air Macau will receive a total of five Airbus A321neo jets through leasing agreements with ALC and AerCap. The long-term leasing agreement with the latter company was signed in September this year. Today’s delivery is part of a December 2018 deal with ALC for the lease of two A321neo.
