11 December, 2017: GECAS, a world leader in aviation leasing and financing has received its 394th and final skyline order of Boeing’s Next Generation 737. Just over a month prior to Boeing delivering its first 737 MAX to GECAS in January, the lessor received its final skyline NG order last week.
“An exceptionally valuable asset in our portfolio, the Next-Generation 737 has been incredibly reliable for our customers,” states Declan Kelly, GECAS Executive Vice President, noting “Much of our success since the late 1990’s is in some way attributable to the NG and the relationship we’ve developed with the team at Boeing.”
Besides new orders, GECAS has also provided new aircraft lease financing on 737NGs to customers globally.
“The Next-Generation 737 has been an icon of the aviation industry for two decades,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes president & CEO Kevin McAllister. “It’s been a workhorse for airlines and lessors alike and we’re proud to have delivered so many of these airplanes to GECAS. We look forward to beginning a new chapter of success together when GECAS takes delivery of its first 737 MAX next year.”
