CDB Aviation leases three 737-800s to Nordwind Airlines

CDB Aviation Lease Finance (CDB Aviation), a wholly owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing (CDB Leasing), has agreed the long term lease of three 737-800s to Russian carrier, Nordwind Airlines.

The first 737-800 was delivered to the airline last week. The second aircraft was delivered on August 1, and the third remaining aircraft is expected to deliver toward the end of August. The 737-800s are configured in a single economy class layout and will be operated on Nordwind’s domestic routes.

“We are pleased to welcome our new customer, Nordwind Airlines, to CDB Aviation’s growing European customer network,” said CDB Aviation Chief Executive Officer Peter Chang. “With the addition of three new 737-800s, our colleagues at Nordwind will be able to further advance their fleet expansion strategy in response to growing demand on the domestic air travel market.”

“Nordwind is currently in a very advantageous position in the Russian market, operating domestic and international regular flights, and this position has by now been recognized among our competitors. The main goal is to form a younger, well-balanced fleet, which consists of the most popular aircraft models,” commented Nordwind Airlines Vice Chairman Oguz Senol Yuce.
