China Aircraft Leasing Group Holdings Ltd. is considering ordering long-range jets from Airbus SE’s A320neo family of aircraft, reflecting a trend of airlines looking to fly further in smaller planes.

The Hong Kong-based lessor expects to make a decision on whether to order the A321XLR next year, Chief Executive Officer Mike Poon said in an interview at the Singapore Airshow. The company is also assessing the A220, he said.
