Finnair (AY, Helsinki Vantaa) is preparing to evaluate the future of its narrowbody fleet with an eventual order poised to be "the biggest investment in the next decade," CEO Topi Manner told Air Transport World.

Currently, the Finnish flag carrier's narrowbody fleet includes eight A319-100s with an average age of 18 years, ten A320-200s (17 years), and nineteen A321-200 (8 years). The airline also wet-leases a single A320 from GetJet Airlines (GW, Vilnius).

According to the ch-aviation fleets ownership module, Finnair owns seven A319s, eight A320s, and five A321s. It also dry-leases its narrowbody Airbus aircraft from BOC Aviation (five A321s), Aircastle (one A320 and one A321), AerCap (one A319), CDB Aviation (two A321s), FLY Leasing (one A320), Goshawk (one A321), Jackson Square Aviation (two A321s), KDAC Aircraft Leasing (one A321), and Nomura Babcock & Brown (two A321s).

Manner also said that the airline will try to add more joint venture partners. It currently has JVs with JAL - Japan Airlines, British Airways, and American Airlines.
