The order marks the completion of part of an agreement announced during the Paris Air Show in June. At list prices, the order is valued at $2.5 billion.

"This order for Next-Generation 737-800s and 777-300ERs is a key building block in the foundation of our growing commercial leasing fleet," said Steven F. Udvar-Hazy, chairman and CEO of Air Lease Corporation. "With this order, we'll be able to offer our clients a most economical, fuel-efficient and versatile airplane, suitable for a variety of profitable missions."

The order builds on ALC's existing backlog of 60 Next-Generation 737-800s.

The 777-300ER is the world's largest long-range twin-engine jetliner, capable of carrying 365 passengers up to 7,930 nautical miles (14,685 kilometers). To date 34 customers around the world have ordered more than 500 777-300ERs.
