Air Lease Corporation (ALC) has signed an agreement to purchase five ATR 72-600s.

ALC has purchased ATRs every year since its first order for 10 aircraft at Farnborough in 2010, and this order will bring ALC's ATR fleet to 21 aircraft.

Since ALC's first order three years ago, ATR has received nearly 110 firm orders from leasing companies, representing approximately one quarter of its total orders for this period. Leasing companies have become increasingly interested in the popularity of ATRs, with more than 180 operators worldwide. Since 2010, ATR 72-600s accounted for three quarters of all regional aircraft with up to 90 seats purchased by all lessors worldwide.

Steven Udvar-Hazy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Air Lease Corporation said, "ATR aircraft are fuel-efficient, offer operational flexibility, and are equipped with comfortable cabins for their passengers. These advantages allow the 180 worldwide operators to increase economic and environmental efficiency when flying shorter routes. This aircraft has been great fit for a number of our regional airline customers."
