GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric, has finalised an order with Boeing for 10 787-10 Dreamliners.

 The order, valued at $2.9 billion at list prices, completes the commitment originally announced during the 2013 Paris Air Show in June and builds momentum in the airplane leasing market for the 787-10.

"These airplanes are an excellent addition to our broad portfolio of modern, fuel-efficient aircraft," said GECAS President and CEO Norman C.T. Liu. "This order enables us to offer our airline customers an airplane with the lowest operating costs."

The new 787-10, launched in June 2013, will extend and complement the family, carrying 300 to 330 passengers up to 7,000 nautical miles (12,964 km).

The 787-10 will feature the 787 family's interior. The interior technologies make the passenger experience more enjoyable, including large, dimmable windows; cleaner air; higher humidity; lower cabin altitude; bigger stowage bins; soothing LED lighting and a smoother ride.

To date, the 787-10 has accumulated 102 orders and commitments from five customers worldwide.

These 787-10s bring the total number of airplanes GECAS has ordered from Boeing to 598 since 1995, including 737s, 747s, 757s, 767s, 777s and 787s.

To date, GECAS has taken delivery of 451 Boeing airplanes.
