Air Lease Corp has ordered two new Boeing 787-9s and finalised a previously announced order for 12 737 Max aircraft, Boeing says on 8 August.
ALC selected GE Aviation GEnx-1B engines to power the two new 787-9s, the engine manufacturer says. The 737 Max is powered exclusively by the CFM International Leap-1B engine.
Deliveries of the 787-9s are scheduled to begin in 2019, GE says.
The new sale extends the lessor’s orderbook of 787s to 49 and 737 Max backlog to 130.
A Boeing press release identified the types included within the order as five 737 Max 7s and seven 737 Max 8s.
The new orders reflect “incremental demand we are experiencing for these aircraft across both existing and new customers for ALC”, says John Plueger, chief executive and president of ALC.
