Air Lease Corporation (ALC) announced Monday that it has signed
lease agreements for 10 additional twin-aisle aircraft.
“These twin-aisle lease placements fit ALC’s growth
plan which includes broadening our global customer base and fleet
with a prudent, measured quantity of new or young high demand
A330-200/300 and 777-300ER twin-aisle aircraft,” said John L.
Plueger, President and Chief Operating Officer of Air Lease
ALC has leased two Airbus A330-200s to Vietnam Airlines in an
