Freres' Airbus leasing deal takes flight

Frere Cholmeley Bischoff's aviation practice advised International Airways on negotiation and conclusion of lease agreements for three new Airbus A320 aircraft. They are due for delivery in April.

International Airways will be launched this spring. It is owned by USM-listed tour operator Inspirations.

The aircraft were leased from Wilmington Trust Company as trustee for Kawasaki Leasing International, which was advised by Allen & Overy and Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy.

Freres partner Mark Franklin ran the deal.
