Air Lease Corporation has committed to order an additional 5 787-9 models from Boeing, which will bring its total Dreamliner fleet to 61 aircraft.
“Demand for reliable, versatile, and fuel-efficient airplanes is at an all-time high,” said Steven Udvar-Házy, Executive Chairman of Air Lease Corporation. “These five Boeing 787-9 aircraft are required by our airline customers to satisfy strong ALC lease placements of the 787.”
“We are thrilled that ALC has decided to add more 787 Dreamliners to its elite portfolio of airplanes that they place with customers across the globe,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing of The Boeing Company. “I’m confident that the market-leading capabilities of the 787-9 will continue contributing to ALC’s long-term success.”
Boeing has sold more than 1,400 Dreamliners since the program’s introduction, making it the fastest-selling widebody jet in history.
