CIT ORDERS 38 737NGS

CIT Aerospace has placed an order for 38 Boeing 737NG aircraft with options on another seven 737s. The order includes 15 737-900ER and 23 737-800s, which are scheduled for delivery into 2017.

This is the largest order placed by a leasing company for the 737-900ER and is the largest order placed by CIT for Boeing aircraft.

“This order of Next-Generation Boeing aircraft reflects our efforts to maintain one of the youngest and most technologically advanced fleets in the industry,” said C Jeffrey Knittel, president of Transportation Finance at CIT. “As a leading aircraft lessor, it is important that we continue to maintain a portfolio of operationally dependable and fuel-efficient aircraft for our customers.”

Marlin Dailey, vice president of sales & marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said: “CIT’s choice of the Next Generation 737 shows its confidence in the product family and especially in its newest member, the 737-900ER, which features incredible economics and operational capability. CIT is one of the leading companies in global transportation finance, and clearly recognizes the value that the Next Generation 737 will bring to its airline customers. CIT will be receiving its 737s with the innovative Boeing Sky Interior and other performance improvements that will keep its airplanes at the leading edge of passenger comfort, efficient operations and reduced fuel consumption.”

Meanwhile, Airbus order data shows that CIT has cancelled orders for eight A320-family aircraft and swapped them for four A330s.
