Synergy Aerospace, the Latin-American consortium, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for ten A350-800s and ten options.
This further commitment comes in addition to the 47 A320 Family aircraft and ten A330-200s that its subsidiaries already have on order, making it a key customer for Airbus in Latin America. Synergy Aerospace, is a shareholder of Avianca and SAM in Colombia, Oceanair in Brazil and VIP in Ecuador.
“This new order consolidates our fleet renewal and expansion programme. Our affiliates will be the biggest beneficiaries of Airbus’ outstanding product. We will also benefit greatly from the commonality of these A350s with our A320 and A330 aircraft”, said German Efromovich, President of Synergy Aerospace.

It will not only bring them unbeatable operating costs and unrivalled operating performance but also offer their customers the cutting edge in passenger comfort, as well as setting new standards in terms of environmental friendliness and eco-efficiency,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.
