I hope this isn't being repetative but here is a brief excerpt from the official ILFC website:
ILFC LEASES 20 NEW AIRBUS AIRCRAFT
TO SPIRIT AIRLINES
Century City, CA
, March 19, 2004 — International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of American International Group, Inc. (NYSE
: AIG), announced the lease placement of 20 new Airbus aircraft to SPIRIT AIRLINES.
SPIRIT AIRLINES, Miramar, Florida, committed to lease 18 new A319-100’s and 2 new A321-200’s from ILFC on 15 year leases, all equipped with IAE V2500 engines. Deliveries will commence in April 2005, and will include 8 deliveries in 2005 (including the
2 A321’s,) 6 A319’s in 2006 and 6 A319’s in 2007.
Obviously the info is outdated (as you can tell between the differences in actual aircraft ordered then as compared to now) but it does give a little insight into the deal.
