GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) announced an order for 20 of the new Boeing 737 MAX 10 at the Paris Air Show by converting 20 of its current MAX orders to the larger MAX 10, which was launched Monday.
“This MAX 10 order further enhances our fleet with the newest technology, offering our customers commonality along with increased range and available seating,” said Alec Burger, president and chief executive officer of GECAS. “Combining the increased capacity of the MAX 10 and the CFM International LEAP-1B engines offers our customers many benefits.”
GECAS has 170 MAX airplanes on order, the largest of any aircraft leasing company.
Separately, GECAS also announced a firm order for 100 Airbus A320neo family aircraft at the 52nd International Paris Air Show. All the aircraft will be powered by CFM’s LEAP-1A engines.
This new order brings the total number of A320 Family aircraft ordered by GECAS to ~600 aircraft. Of these 220 are A320neo family aircraft including 33 A321neo.
“The A320neo aircraft is an excellent product. GECAS is pleased to make this additional commitment for A320neos to meet strong customer demand for this type,” said Burger. “The A320neo family aircraft powered by CFM’s LEAP-1A engines, with proven increased fuel efficiencies, longer range and higher seating capacity will continue to be one of the core assets in our lease portfolio. The A321 version has also gained strong acceptance from customers in various new markets proving the versatility of the type.”
