Air Lease Corp. (ALC) has ordered six 777-300ERs and has reconfirmed orders for 20 737 MAX 8 aircraft, valued at $3.9 billion at current list prices. The order was announced at the Farnborough Airshow.
The 737 MAX 8 aircraft will be powered by CFM LEAP-1B engines and the 777-300ERs will be powered by GE90-115B engines.
This 737 MAX order brings ALC’s combined orders for the 737 MAX to 104 aircraft. The 777-300ER order marks the 100th 777 order from ALC chairman and CEO Steven Udvar-Házy during his career in the industry.
"Additional 777-300ER and 737 MAX airplanes in our portfolio provide the economics and passenger-pleasing experiences our airline customers require,” Házy said. “The 777 has maintained a broad customer base and will continue to do so well into the future. The 737 MAX represents game-changing efficiencies and improvements for the environment in the single-aisle market.”
On Monday, Air Lease Corp. became the launch customer for the Airbus A330-900neo with an order for 25 of the type.
