GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) has signed a firm purchase order for five Bombardier Q400s and has taken options for 10 more of the type.
“We are delighted that GECAS has chosen to acquire additional Q400 NextGen aircraft,” announced president of Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, Mike Arcamone. “With the world’s largest leased commercial aircraft fleet, GECAS’s continued acquisition of the Q400 NexGen turboprop is a strong endorsement of the value, in-service performance and reliability the aircraft provides.”
“As we continue to grow our leasing fleet, we are pleased to be adding up to 15 more Q400 NextGen aircraft,” noted Norman Liu, president and CEO of GECAS. “We have seen a growing demand for turboprop aircraft worldwide and the Q400 NextGen aircraft is ideally positioned to meet the needs of regional airlines now and in the future.”
