Lessor to Support Leading Colombian Low-cost Airline’s Fleet Strategy
Dubai, U.A.E., 3 September 2017 – Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) Ltd. announced its leasing division DAE Capital has completed the delivery of three Airbus A320-200 CFMI powered aircraft to new customer, VivaColombia. The three aircraft bearing serial numbers 3896, 3931 & 3949 were delivered in June and August respectively.
VivaColombia is Colombia’s first ultra-low cost carrier and operates both domestic and international routes. The deal is structured to give the airline the flexibility to also operate the aircraft in the fleet of the recently launched sister company Viva Air Peru.
Firoz Tarapore, CEO of DAE said, “We are delighted to have been selected by VivaColombia to be part of their growth plans and look forward to further supporting their fleet financing requirements.Â Our team worked very closely with the VivaColombia team over a number of months to develop a deal that met the specific needs of a modern low-cost operator.

William Shaw, VivaColombia CEO, said, “We are pleased with the flexibility of the fleet solution provided by DAE Capital which has enabled us to bridge our fleet requirement ahead of receiving our new aircraft order from Airbus. We look forward to further developing our business relationship.”
