Aircraft lessor Avolon on Tuesday announced the cancellation of an additional 27 Boeing 737 MAX planes after cancelling 75 of the jets in April as it grapples with the fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic. It also canceled one Airbus A330neo widebody jet, the fifth it has canceled since the start of the Covid-19 crisis, and deferred the delivery of three A320neo aircraft until 2022.

The Dublin-based lessor said it has reduced its near-term commitments by over 140 aircraft since the start of the year. The 737 MAX has been grounded.
