Air Macau and AerCap have signed a long-term leasing agreement for three new Airbus A321neo.
This was announced during the carrier’s 25th anniversary celebration. Air Macau, flag-carrier of the Macao Special Administrative Region in China, was founded on September 13th, 1994. It commenced operations in late-1995.
The new agreement adds to Air Macau’s existing order for two A321neo with Air Lease Corporation (ALC), which was placed in December 2018.
The first A321neo from the previous order is due to be delivered in November this year, the second one in the first quarter of 2020. November 2020 is the scheduled delivery time for the first A321neo from Air Macau’s new order. It will take until October 2021 for all five A321neos to be delivered to the airline.
Air Macau has not yet specified a seat configuration for the aircraft type, nor routes it is due to operate on.
The airline, owned by Chinese flag-carrier Air China, currently operates an all-Airbus fleet, consisting of A319, A320 and A321. Additionally, Air Macau flies three Airbus A320neo, the first one was delivered in April this year.
