CDB Aviation Lease Finance DAC, (CDB Aviation), a wholly owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing, delivered the first of three Boeing 737-800 aircraft to Urumqi Air, a Chinese low-cost carrier based at Urumqi Diwopu International Airport.
We are very delighted to begin delivery of three 737-800s to Urumqi Air and welcome the airline as our new lessee customer, said CDB Aviation President and CEO Peter Chang. We look forward to supporting the expansion of their all-Boeing 737 aircraft fleet and their domestic and regional services to meet the growing demand for air travel in Xinjiang.
“We’re thrilled to successfully receive our tenth 737-800 before the eve of Urumqi Air’s 3rd anniversary,” said Urumqi Air President Wenbing Li. “With the introduction of this new aircraft, Urumqi Air will continue to develop new routes in Xinjiang and improve the regional network to provide more convenient and efficient air services to the local people. We will strengthen our relationship with CDB Aviation and wish both parties could work together to explore more co-operation in the near future.”
