GE Capital Aviation Services Orders 12 A330 Aircraft

Will Bring The Number Of A330's On Order From GE To 32

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 480.
