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

A330-200/300 and 777-300ER twin-aisle aircraft,” said John L.
