GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric, has signed a firm order for 60 additional Airbus A320 family aircraft. This new order brings the total number of A320 family aircraft ordered by GECAS to 327 and the backlog of aircraft to be delivered to 99 aircraft.

Were pleased to announce the growth of our A320 fleet with this new order today, said Norman C.T. Liu, president and CEO of GECAS. We have a solid track record of placing A320s with our customer base across the world.

GECAS customers will be able to select the Sharklet option for aircraft to be delivered from the end of 2012. Sharklets have been developed to enhance the eco-efficiency and payload-range performance of the A320 family resulting in at least 3.5% reduced fuel burn over longer sectors.

The A320 Family includes the A318, A319, A320 and A321.
