An airline leasing company signed an agreement to purchase 20 Airbus A380s, the world's largest passenger plane. While the purchase price of the plane is $400 million, Doric Asset Finance plans to lease the plane for only $1.8 million per month. "We'd like to think that a significant part of the order will go to operators that have not yet got the A380 in their fleet," said Paul Kent, Doric's chief commercial officer.
