Griffin Global Announces the Purchase and Leaseback of A320neo with SKY Express
Griffin Global Asset Management has announced the purchase and leaseback of their second Airbus A320neo with SKY Express. The aircraft was built in 2019 for Mexican carrier Interjet but never delivered and was handed over to SKY Express in late May following a repaint in Shannon. The aircraft entered service for SKY Express last week following a short post-delivery modification.
Commenting on the deal, the Vice President of Marketing at Griffin, Michael Lombardi said, “We are very pleased to expand our relationship with SKY Express by adding a second Airbus A320neo to their fleet via a sale and leaseback. They continue to build a successful airline and we are excited to support that growth in the coming years.”
Also commenting was the General Manager of IOGR Group, Vassiliki Christidi who added, “The delivery of the second Airbus A320neo further strengthens our strategic partnership with Griffin Global Asset Management. We greatly appreciate their trust and commitment in helping us grow SKY Express.”
