Avianca

As part of the implementation of the 'Avianca 2021 Plan', Avianca management has reached the following agreements to tailor its aircraft commitments to its future requirements:

  • In cooperation with Airbus, the Company has reduced its firm commitments to 88 A320neo aircraft (from 108)
    • Previously scheduled firm A320neo family deliveries in 2020 through 2024 have been deferred or cancelled
    • The 88 remaining commitments are now scheduled for delivery in 2025 through 2028 (20 per year) with the balance in 2029 (8)
    • These agreements provide comprehensive financial benefits, with significant Capex reduction in the period through the end of 2024
  • Separately, Avianca has agreed to enter into 12-year operating leases for up to 12 A320neo aircraft with BOC Aviation
    • Deliveries to occur after 2023, consistent with the Avianca 2021 plan 
  • Finally, Avianca reached a mutually beneficial agreement with Boeing with regards to the outstanding 787-9 deliveries

CFO Adrian Neuhauser said "The completion of these three major aircraft transactions, coupled with the recently completed financial reprofiling and securing of $375 million of new long-term capital financing, places Avianca in a solid position as it moves forward with the Avianca 2021 Plan."
