Finnair has entered into a memorandum of understanding with GE Capital Aviation Services Limited (“GECAS”), on the sale and leaseback of two Airbus A350 aircraft. The financing will cover Finnair’s 6th and 7th A350 deliveries, which are currently scheduled to enter the Finnair fleet in July 2016 and February 2017, respectively.
I think there must be a mistake in the news, they must mean 7th and 8th aircraft. Elsewhere Finnair informs that they have 6 deliveries by the end of Q2 and 7 by the end of 2016. 11 by the end of 2017.
