Boeing has unveiled a commitment by GE Capital
Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and
financing arm of General Electric, to purchase 75 737 MAX 8s and
25 Next-Generation 737-800s.
"GECAS is a leader in the airplane leasing and
financing industry with a successful track record of placing 737
with airlines worldwide," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes
President and CEO Ray Conner. "The GECAS leadership team
understands the importance of having advanced, fuel-efficient
airplanes to meet their customers' needs. This commitment confirms
the value of the 737 MAX in today's competitive marketplace."
The 737 MAX incorporates the latest-technology
CFM International LEAP-1B engines.
"The 737 MAX is a perfect complement
to our airplane portfolio," said Norman C.T. Liu, President and
CEO of GECAS. "These new Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX airplanes
will continue our long-standing strategy of providing our customers the most fuel efficient, most capable airplanes with the
lowest operating costs."
Boeing is now working with GECAS to finalize the
details of the agreement before a firm order is made.
