Announcement of Aircraft Order

The Board is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into an agreement with Boeing to purchase a further 4 new Boeing 737-800NG aircraft in addition to the acquisition of a total of 30 aircraft announced in 2015.  The additional 4 aircraft will be delivered between August 2018 and January 2019.  

The terms for these aircraft are substantially the same as those approved by the Board for the 2015 purchases.  At current list prices, the total value of this transaction is US$384m though the Company has negotiated significant discounts from the list price.  The aircraft, which will assist the Company in meeting the future anticipated growth of its Leisure Travel business and planned fleet replacement, are expected to be funded through a combination of internal resources and debt.
