Airbus Sells to ILFC

LE BOURGET, France -- Europe's Airbus Industrie revealed on Wednesday U.S. leasing company ILFC as the mystery buyer of 57 narrow-body jets in a sale that had been announced, though the buyer had not been named.

ILFC, the International Leasing Finance Corp., has signed firm orders for a total 60 Airbus planes in the A320 family, comprising 30 of the newly launched A318 small jet, 16 A319s, four A320s and 10 A321s, the aircraft consortium said at the weeklong Paris Air Show.

ILFC President Steven Udvar-Hazy gave no price details at a news conference Wednesday.
