Boeing, GECAS Announce Commitment For 100 737s

Leasing Company To Purchase 75 737 MAX 8s, 25 Next-Generation 737-800s

GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric, has agreed to purchase 75 737 MAX 8s and 25 Next-Generation 737-800s. Boeing made the announcement Monday at the Farnborough Air Show in London, saying the commitment builds on the momentum for the 737 MAX.

Boeing says it looks forward to working with GECAS to finalize the details of the agreement, at which time the airplanes will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website as a firm order. "GECAS is a leader in the airplane leasing and financing industry with a successful track record of placing 737 with airlines worldwide," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. "The GECAS leadership team understands the importance of having advanced, fuel-efficient airplanes to meet their customers' needs. This commitment confirms the value of the 737 MAX in today's competitive marketplace."

The 737 MAX is a new-engine variant of the world's best-selling airplane and builds on the strengths of today's Next-Generation 737. The 737 MAX incorporates the latest-technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in single-aisle aircraft.

"The 737 MAX is a perfect complement to our airplane portfolio," said Norman C.T. Liu, President and CEO of GECAS. "These new Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX airplanes will continue our long-standing strategy of providing our customers the most fuel efficient, most capable airplanes with the lowest operating costs."
