(Updated with delivery dates in paragraph 2)
ALC has finalised an order for 30 Boeing 787-10s and three 787-9s that it first announced at the Paris air show in June.
The order is valued at $9.4 billion at list prices. ALC says deliveries of the aircraft will commence in 2019 and continue through 2023. ALC was one of five customers that launched the 787-10 with orders announced at the show.
"We are thrilled to be adding 787-10s and additional 787-9s to our portfolio," says ALC chairman and chief executuve Steven Udvar-Hazy. "The performance characteristics of the 787-10 will build on the 787 family's success in the marketplace by providing the ideal size, capabilities and economical operating costs for medium to long-haul markets."
The 787-9 completed its first flight yesterday and is scheduled for first delivery to Air New Zealand in mid-2014. The 787-10 will be delivered from 2018.
"ALC is an ideal partner to help establish the 787-10 in the airplane leasing market," says Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and chief executive Ray Conner. "The ALC team has an excellent understanding of its airline customers' requirements and a successful track record placing Boeing airplanes that meet those needs."
The finalised order adds to the more than 180 aircraft that ALC already has on order.
