Will Bring The Number Of A330's On Order From GE To
GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft
leasing and financing arm of General Electric, has signed a firm
order for 12 additional long-range A330-300 aircraft. This new
order brings the total number of A330s ordered by GECAS to 32.
“This order adds to our existing portfolio of A330
aircraft,” said Norman C. T. Liu, GECAS President and CEO.
“A key part of our strategy is to expand our wide-body
product offerings to satisfy customer demand.”
"This repeat order from GECAS underscores the ongoing popularity
of the A330, and highlights the strong market demand for the
A330-300 in particular" said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating
Officer, Customers. "The unbeatable economic efficiency and proven
passenger appeal of this aircraft make it the perfect choice in
today's market for medium capacity routes."
Airbus aircraft share a unique cockpit and operational
commonality, allowing airlines to use the same pool of pilots,
cabin crews and maintenance engineers, bringing operational
flexibility and resulting in significant cost savings.
The A330-300 has a range of up to 5,600 nm with a typical
300 passenger load. Orders for the aircraft stand at more than
