SMBC Says It’s Not Discussing Additional A320Neo Purchase

SMBC Aviation Capital said it isn’t in talks with Airbus Group SE about a purchase of additional A320neo aircraft, denying a report that the two sides were in discussions about a transaction.

The leasing company, which ordered 110 A320neo aircraft last year, isn’t looking to add more planes, said Rob Greening, a spokesman at Powerscourt Group, a London-based public relations company that represents SMBC.

Bloomberg News reported earlier on Sunday that the two sides were in advanced talks about a purchase of 30 A320neos, citing unidentified people familiar with the discussions.
