Rendering of A330-900neo in CIT livery
US lessor CIT Group has firmed up its order for 15 Airbus A330-900neos and five A321ceos. CIT became one of the launch customers of the A330neo after signing an initial agreement in July at the Farnborough Airshow.
“Given our long-term leadership on the A330 program, we are proud to be one of the first customers to sign a purchase agreement for the all-new A330neo aircraft,” CIT Transportation & International Finance Jeff Knittel said. “These agreements will enable us to provide fuel-efficient solutions to our customers as CIT continues to be a leader in providing early access to the most sought after aircraft for our customers.”
In March, CIT Group urged Airbus to make a decision “in the next six months” on whether to re-engine the A330 for a potential 2017 entry-into-service.
