Aircraft leasing company Avation PLC (LON:AVAP) has signed multiple long-term leases with two airlines for four aircraft.

The company confirmed it has signed a new lease for a mid-life Airbus A321 that will commence on expiry of its existing lease in mid-2018. The aircraft will move over to another European airline for a term of 72 months at typical commercial rates for a mid-life aircraft, Avation said.

The other three aircraft are the ATR 72-600s referred to in the letter of intent announced back in July; the long-term leases have now been signed.

The aircraft are being leased to Mandarin Airlines, the subsidiary of Taiwanese flag carrier China Airlines.
