GECAS has committed to leasing 12 Boeing 737 Max 8s to Jet Airways, with deliveries commencing in June and continuing through to 2020.

The lessor says that six of the jets will come from its own orderbook, with the other six to be acquired through sale-and-leaseback transactions with the carrier.

The deal was announced just over a week after Jet confirmed an order for an additional 75 737 Max aircraft. It also had 54 737 Max 8s on order from a commitment made at the 2015 Dubai air show.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that the carrier operates 72 737-800s, four -700s, four -900ERs and two -900s.
