AerCap, the Dutch aircraft lessor, signed a firm order with Airbus yesterday for an additional 10 A330-200s valued at $1.6 billion, bringing to 30 the number of the type it has on order. "Since AerCap ordered 20 new [A330-200s] in December last year, we have already lined up customers for 13 out of the 20 aircraft," CEO Klaus Heinemann said. "The order for an additional 10 aircraft will help us to further expand our portfolio in the attractive market for modern, smaller widebody aircraft."
