CDB Agrees Lease with MAS Air
Dublin based CDB Aviation has announced that it has reached an agreement with Mexico based MasAir Cargo Airlines for the lease of two Airbus A330-300 Passenger-to-Freighter aircraft. It will be the first lease agreed between CDB and MasAir. The Airbus A330P2F’s will be on long-term lease to its MasAir and the aircraft will be the first two positions from CDB Aviation’s agreement with Germany-based EFW for the aircraft type’s conversion which was announced in November 2020. These two aircraft are currently scheduled to be delivered in the first half of 2022.
Commenting on the deal, CDB Aviation Chief Marketing Officer Peter Goodman said, “We are thrilled to welcome MasAir as the newest member of our growing customer base in Mexico and the Americas. With the increasing demand for express air cargo driven by robust e-commerce activity, our A330 P2Fs will deliver the desired combination of capacity and operating economics to support MasAir’s expansion plans, equipping their fleet to effectively cater to the needs of the expanding e-commerce infrastructure.”
Also commenting on the deal was MasAir CEO, Luis Sierra who said, “Our past has delivered knowledge, responsibility, safety, an extraordinary legacy, and the best platform that our new MasAir can offer. The A330-300 P2Fs from CDB Aviation will provide bigger capacity and efficiency, marking the continued process of MasAir on becoming a global player in the air cargo arena. With these additional A330s we continue the path of growing our fleet with more efficient and longer-range aircraft.”
