Stratos announced the delivery of two Boeing 737-800s on long-term operating leases to Air Europa as the airline takes off towards a new stage of growth with a significant fleet expansion. The aircraft (MSNs 39866 and 39858) are part of the Stratos securitised portfolio JOL Air 2019-1 and underwent substantial cabin and avionic modification works after being returned from Malindo Air, Malaysia.
Jamie Carter, Commercial Director of Stratos said “We are delighted to have delivered this package of two aircraft to Air Europa. The Air Europa team have been a pleasure to work with and Stratos looks forward to a long and successful relationship.”
Air Europa said “The addition of these new aircraft to our fleet allows us to continue to face both the Summer and the second half of the year with maximum guarantees. We continue to increase our supply of seats in response to the increase in demand, which has allowed us to reactivate our routes and to raise the frequency of flights.”
