VMO completes sale-leaseback to Cebu


Vmo Aircraft Leasing, a global full-service aircraft lessor, announced the completion of a sale and leaseback transaction for two Airbus A320-200 aircraft with Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ largest airline. The aircraft were sold and leased back to the carrier prior to the end of 2021.

“This transaction marks the commencement of a new airline relationship with one of the premier low-cost carriers in the Asia Pacific region. We are very pleased to partner with Cebu Pacific on this transaction, which was executed in a very tight timeframe and supports our client during these challenging times,” said Marilyn Gan, Vmo Aircraft Leasing’s Senior Vice President and Head of Asia Pacific.

Cebu Pacific is optimistic that the partnership will complement its re-fleeting programme. “We thank the whole team for enabling us to complete the deal on time. We are happy to have found a new partner in Vmo and look forward to fortifying this relationship as we move forward with our fleet modernisation plan,” said Mark Julius Cezar, Cebu Pacific’s Chief Financial Officer.

Vmo said it hoped that the tie-up will help Cebu Pacific maximise its network capacity as it flies toward expected recovery in 2022. Vmo Aircraft Leasing is a global commercial aircraft lessor operating through offices in Dublin, San Francisco, and Singapore. The company was launched in January 2021 by a team of aviation industry veterans and funds managed by Private Equity and Credit Groups of Ares Management Corporation.
