AWAS has acquired a new Boeing 737-800 aircraft from Gol Linhas Aéreas under a purchase and leaseback transaction.

The 737-800, MSN 39604, was financed with the proceeds from the six-year $360 million senior term loan that the operating lessor closed last month.

The aircraft is in addition of a five-aircraft purchase and lease back agreement signed in March 2011. To date, four 737-800s have delivered while the remaining delivery is scheduled for February 2013.
