RBS Aviation Capital and Boeing have disclosed the former as the purchaser of 43 Boeing Next-Generation 737-800s in orders which were posted to Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries website in 2008 and 2009 and attributed to an unidentified customer.
RBS Aviation Capital will be leasing the aeroplanes to its customers through to 2015. “I am delighted that RBS Aviation Capital is continuing its excellent and long-standing relationships with Boeing,” said Peter Barrett, CEO, RBS Aviation Capital. “The Next-Generation 737 family has been instrumental in helping us to create a highly successful global business that has pioneered the strategy of owning and leasing narrowbody, commodity aircraft types that are liquid, investor-friendly and easily tradeable. Our ongoing commitments to Boeing underline that we remain very positive on the outlook for both RBS Aviation Capital and the wider aircraft leasing sector.”
