Boeing has announced that new leasing company Air Lease Corporation (ALC) will purchase up to 60 Next-Generation 737-800s.
The agreement includes 54 firm orders and six options, with deliveries scheduled through 2017. Boeing says it looks forward to finalising the details of the agreement, at which time it will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website.
“We have selected the Boeing 737-800 as a cornerstone of our growing commercial aircraft lease fleet. The 737-800 represents an opportunity for our wide range of airline clients to operate this 150-189 passenger aeroplane, on a wide variety of airline missions profitably,” said Steven Udvar-Hazy, chairman and CEO of Air Lease Corporation. “This order with Boeing will continue this management team’s tradition of working closely with Boeing since 1977.”
