    We continue to see strong demand for the A320 Family CEO and NEO models from operators looking to grow their business

    NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CIT Group Inc. (NYSE:CIT), a global leader in transportation finance, today announced that CIT Aerospace has ordered five additional A321ceo (current engine option) aircraft. This order is in addition to its previous order for five A321-200ceo aircraft signed at the 2014 Farnborough International Airshow and firmed up in November 2014. Deliveries of this new order are scheduled for 2016.

    This latest agreement brings CIT Aerospace’s total order for the A320 Family to 205 aircraft, comprised of 155 CEO and 50 NEO aircraft.

    “We continue to see strong demand for the A320 Family CEO and NEO models from operators looking to grow their business,” said Jeff Knittel, President of CIT Transportation & International Finance. “The larger A321 in particular is becoming an increasing sought after model, as steady passenger growth encourages airlines to deploy larger fuel-efficient aircraft.”

    John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, said, “When leading lessor, CIT, continues to place incremental orders for the A321, we take that as a clear confirmation of the trend for larger aircraft and the high value the market places on this largest member of our popular, fuel-efficient A320 Family. The A320 Family is a solid investment for lessors as it is recognized worldwide as the number one, best-selling single-aisle aircraft family and the preferred choice with airlines in all segments thanks to its unbeatable economics, high operational reliability and best-in-class passenger comfort.”
