Frontier gets 11th Airbus A320neo from GECAS

Leasing giant GECAS has delivered its eleventh A320 neo to Frontier via a Sale-Leaseback with the company.  The initial delivery in October 2017 marked Frontier’s first neo and subsequent deliveries make Frontier the first operator of a Leap-powered A320neo to be delivered out of Mobile, Alabama.

GECAS previously financed nine A321ceos with Frontier and has commitments for more of the neo variety.  The additional sixteen A320neo’s signify GECAS’ commitment and long-term relationship with the airline. 

“Working with GECAS to introduce the LEAP-powered neo to our fleet has provided us the ability to support our growing fleet requirements with the latest technology and fuel efficiency,” said Robert Fanning, Director of Fleet Transactions at Frontier Airlines.

“Our relationship with Frontier continues to be a remarkable partnership,” says GECAS’ SVP of US Sales & Marketing, James Wenning, “one that we are honoured to have and look forward to continuing for years to come.” -- .
