United Continental to lease 11 A319s from AerCap

United Continental has announced plans to lease up to 25 used aircraft from AerCap over the next two years, with the right to add up to 14 more of the single-aisle planes over the next five years.

The additions are part of a broader fleet reorganization United unveiled last month that aims to match bigger planes with markets of growing demand, without increasing its spending or capacity forecasts.

“Our flexible fleet plan allows us to opportunistically add used aircraft when the economics are attractive,” United’s Fleet Vice President Ron Baur said.

China Southern Airlines Co Ltd currently operates the A319s that United will lease, with first deliveries starting in early 2016.
