CDB Aviation leases pair of E190s to Myanmar Airways International

CDB Aviation, a wholly owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing (CDB Leasing), has signed a lease agreement for a pair of Embraer E190 aircraft with Myanmar Airways International (MAI).

The Embraer jet duo will join the carrier’s all-Airbus fleet this summer. The E190s are anticipated to debut on flights within the Myanmar domestic market and some key international routes starting as early as August 2020, supplementing operations by sister carrier Air KBZ on domestic and regional routes, according to the airline. 

MAI currently operates scheduled service to destinations in South East Asia from its main base at Yangon International Airport and Mandalay International Airport.

“We are delighted to be handing over the two E190s to our newest APAC customer MAI, marking the introduction of first-generation Embraer jets on the carrier’s expanding route network,” remarked Peter Goodman, CDB Aviation Chief Marketing Officer. “This jet duo will fit well within MAI’s expanding operations, facilitating their planned development of Myanmar’s market.”
