An Airbus A320-200 for HiSky Moldova from leasing giant Air Lease Corporation

The aircraft leasing giant Air Lease Corporation has confirmed the placement of a used Airbus A320-200 aircraft on a long-term arrangement for HiSky Moldova, scheduled to deliver this July. This will be the first aircraft in the fleet of the Moldovan startup airline.

HiSky Moldova was established by a team of enthusiasts that combines hundreds of years of experience in aviation. Despite these troubled times,  the carrier is intending to launch regular scheduled flights from its home base of Chisinau International Airport to six European destinations, including Bologne, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Lisbon, London and Paris. 

“ALC is pleased to announce this lease placement of our A320-200 with HiSky Moldova. We have worked closely with the HiSky Moldova executive team at previous airlines for many years and are honored to participate in the launch of the airline by providing them with their first aircraft,” said David Beker, Vice President and Head of Aircraft Sales and Trading at Air Lease Corporation.

“We are thrilled to work with one of the largest aircraft leasing companies in the world to assist with the launch of our airline,” said Iulian Scorpan, Chief Executive Officer of HiSky Moldova. “This A320-200 is scheduled to deliver in July and will be the first aircraft in the HiSky Moldova fleet, providing the best standards of safety and premier comfort to our passengers.”

The aircraft, MSN 4493, was constructed in 2010 and will be one of the newest aircraft operated by a Moldova based air carrier. "We are pleased and eager to make a modern, environmentally friendly and high-safety aircraft available to passengers. Our goal is to provide passengers first and foremost with safety and comfort." Scorpan added.  The aircraft is at the preliminary preparation stage for delivery and will be painted in HiSky colours - possible livery is shown above and will arrive in Chisinau in July.
