GECAS Finalizes Order for up to 100 Boeing 737s
GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) finalized an order with Boeing for up to 100 737 aircraft.
The $6 billion order was first announced as a commitment at the Farnborough Airshow. The order calls for 75 737 MAX 8s, 10 Next-Generation 737-800s and includes an option for an additional 15 737-800s.
Boeing did not announce when it expects to deliver the 737s to the commercial aircraft financing and leasing firm.
"The 737 MAX will be a perfect compliment to our broad portfolio of modern, fuel efficient aircraft that offer our airline customers the lowest operating costs," said Norman C.T. Liu, president and CEO of GECAS.
Boeing also recently announced a major order for its 737s from Brazilian carrier GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes.
