DUBLIN (Reuters) – The world’s largest independent aircraft leasing company, AerCap <AER.N> said on Thursday that it believes a handful of its A320neo jet deliveries may be delayed until next year but that it would not have a material impact on its financial results. Airbus <AIR.PA> has delayed a number of deliveries of its A320neo jets due to engine problems with their Pratt & Whitney <UTX.N> engines. “We have a number of Pratt & Whitney powered A320neos scheduled for delivery in the second half of this year. If the problems persist, we would expect that a number of those will slip into 2018,” chief executive Aengus Kelly told journalists on a conference call after AerCap’s second-quarter results. He said the delays would not have a material impact on AerCap as a whole and that he did not believe the problems would continue in the long term. “They will get it right,” he said.
