The plane in question was previously leased to the now defunct Air Berlin, part of which easyJet has now been given permission to acquire

Aircraft leasing group Avation PLC (LON:AVAP) has completed delivery of an Airbus A320-200 to easyJet PLC (LON:EZJ).

A letter of intent was signed back in October but the lease was dependent on easyJet’s partial purchase of Air Berlin – the now defunct German carrier which formerly leased the plane in question.

easyJet has now received approval from the European Commission to press ahead with its acquisition.

As Avation stated back in October, the lease rate and duration are typical for an aircraft of this type.

“We are pleased to have entered into a new lease with easyJet for this Airbus A320, allowing a transition of this aircraft from the now-defunct Air Berlin to an airline of such high regard as easyJet,” said executive chairman Jeff Chatfield.
