Report: Interjet close to placing an order for 12 A220

Fri Oct 04, 2019 5:05 pm

CNBC reports that Mexican airline Interjet is close to a deal to buy 12 Airbus A220 passenger jets to replace its partly grounded fleet of Sukhoi Superjet regional aircraft.

Great news for Interjet. However, were they not in very dire financial straits?

Perhaps a conversion from some of the A320neo orders (aka delaying when they have to give Airbus money)?

I read this morning an interview with the Interjet chairman (Miguel Alemán) in which he talks about the acquisition of forty new A320s and A321s and their arrival during these months, accuses Interjet's competitors of being nasty ("chingaderas" he said), explains (rather poorly) that they won a tax litigation which has diminished pressure on the finances of the company, and lavishes too much praise on AMLO. He also dismissed rumors that the company is close to bankruptcy as just that, rumors. It was quite telling he did not addres the Superjet issue. Nothing in the interview gave any hint re: the A220 order.

I really hope 4O can pull through. Their boutique airline business plan really is nice.

I agree with you. Not many detail about his airline, just blame all over the competition.

At this point, with no information of extra investments from the stockholders, just sounds like that.
