Malaysian low-cost AirAsia X to sell two of its Airbus A330-300 jets

Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia - Malaysian low-cost airline Air Asia X appointed brokerage firm AMS Aircraft Services Limited and EastMerchant Capital GmbH for the sale of two Airbus A330-300 jets.

The planes (MSN 1423 and 1433) are both currently in service with AirAsiaX and are available for delivery to their new operator from the second quarter of this year.

We are both delighted that AirAsiaX has appointed our companies to handle this remarketing assignment for them. Clearly, the industry is facing enormous challenges over the next few months and its focus is on navigating through the storm.

But, in a few months, the storm will abate and there will be a future in which these aircraft can play a positive role for many years, hence why we look forward to using our experience and extensive industry database to bring this new remarketing campaign to a successful conclusion,

Mike Skinner, CEO of AMS and Baldur Vander, Managing Director of EastMerchant said.

AirAsia X currently operates 24 Airbus A330-300 in total. The airline was planning to replace its A330-300s with newer generation A330-900s, but the deliveries were delayed indefinitely by the financially troubled airline due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
