GECAS to take 12 A330neos and 20 A321XLRs

GECAS will add 12 Airbus A330neo widebodies and 20 A321XLR narrowbodies to its portfolio, Airbus has disclosed.

The firm deal, which includes a conversion of seven A321s in the backlog to the XLR, brings the lessor's total A320-family orders to 588 and its A330 orders to 45, says the airframer.

It appears to make GECAS the unidentified customer Airbus recorded an order for in its backlog revision of 7 November, which covered a commitment for a dozen A330neos and 13 A321neos.

Cirium fleets data shows that GECAS has previously ordered 104 A321neos, though these have not included any XLRs.

The lessor has taken delivery of 18 A321neos.

Its A330neo order is its first for that aircraft.
