Jackson Square Aviation (JSA) is pleased to announce a purchase and leaseback financing to Air France with the delivery of one Airbus A350-900 aircraft and a second aircraft due to be delivered soon, both of which are under long-term leases.
“We are delighted to provide further fleet financing solutions to Air France with the delivery of this latest technology A350-900 aircraft,” said Chris Dailey, JSA President & Chief Commercial Officer. Christophe Million-Rousseau, SVP Marketing & Capital Markets EMEA, added, “We look forward to supporting Air France’s fleet renewal plans.”
According to Air France, the Airbus A350-900 is the new flagship of Air France’s long haul fleet. Compared to previous-generation aircraft, it consumes 25% less fuel (i.e. 2.5 litres per passenger/100 km) thanks to the incorporation of materials which are up to 67% lighter – 53% composites and 14% titanium. In addition, its noise footprint is reduced by 40%.
