Air Lease Corporation (ALC) has taken delivery of the first of 15 Boeing 777-300ERs (Extended Range).

This 777-300ER, the eighth 777 in ALC's fleet, is one of two being delivered to British Airways on long-term lease from the lessor. The second 777-300ER for British Airways is scheduled to be delivered in July 2014.

"The operational capabilities and versatility of the 777-300ER provide significant profitability potential for our customers," said ALC Chairman and CEO Steven F. Udvar-Hazy. "With its leading economics and passenger-pleasing interior, this aircraft has maintained a broad customer base year after year and will continue to do so long into the future."

"We are honored that the 777 has a role in ALC's success," said Bill Collins, vice president of Leasing Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The combination of efficiency, industry-leading reliability and award-winning cabin design of the 777-300ER offers operators increased revenue and a superior passenger experience."
