Air Lease Corporation (ALC) reports that it has delivered its first new Embraer aircraft from the direct order placed at the Farnborough International Air Show in 2010 – an E-190 leased to TRIP Linhas Aéreas, the first of six which the airline will take from the lessor.
“The strength of our orderbook containing modern, fuel efficient aircraft and key delivery positions will drive long term growth at ALC,” declared Steven Udvar-Hazy, chairman and CEO of ALC. “We are very pleased to see this strategy unfold, as we deliver the first E-190 from our orderbook to TRIP. We look forward to continuing our long-term partnerships with both Embraer and TRIP.”
Last month’s Paris Air Show order brought ALC’s current contract with Embraer to 30 E-Jets, including 25 E-190s and 5 E-175s.
