Air Lease entered long-term lease agreements with Caribbean Airlines for four new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, scheduled to deliver to the airline starting in the fourth quarter of 2019 through 2020. These four new aircraft will join two Boeing 737-800s currently on lease to Caribbean Airlines from ALC.
“ALC is extremely pleased to announce this lease placement and be the first to introduce the 737 MAX 8 to the airline this year,” said Steven F. Udvar-Házy, Air Lease executive chairman. “The capabilities of the 737 MAX 8 will improve operational efficiency and contribute to Caribbean Airlines’ long-term success as the flag carrier of Trinidad and Tobago.”
“The Boeing 737 MAX 8 will allow Caribbean Airlines to completely revamp and upgrade its fleet by replacing its older Boeing 737-800s,” added Kishore Korde, Air Lease executive vice president. “As a testament to our strong relationship with Caribbean Airlines spanning over two decades, the Boeing 737 MAX 8 is the third new aircraft type that ALC team members have introduced to the airline (and its predecessor) during their careers.”
“Caribbean Airlines is delighted to introduce the Boeing 737 MAX 8 to our fleet with ALC,” said Garvin Medera, CEO of Caribbean Airlines. “The 737 MAX 8 will play an integral role in our success going forward as we continue to increase our competitiveness and high-quality customer service throughout the Caribbean and North and South America.”
Based in Los Angeles, ALC is an aircraft leasing company that has airline customers throughout the world.
