FLY Leasing acquires four new aircraft

FLY Leasing has purchased four new aircraft, including a new Boeing 787 Dreamliner and a new Boeing 737 MAX 8 – the first 737 MAX to join FLY’s fleet. The 787 is on a 12-year lease to a European airline and the 737 MAX 8 is on a 12-year lease to an Asian carrier. FLY also acquired a new Boeing 737-800 on a 10-year lease to a flag carrier in Europe and a new Airbus A320-200 on a 12-year lease to an airline in Asia.

“We continue to find attractive deals to grow our fleet with top-quality aircraft on long leases to leading airlines,” said Colm Barrington, CEO of FLY. “We are thrilled to have added our first new generation 737 MAX 8 to the fleet and to have added our fifth 787. We also continue to add to our growing number of 737-800s and A320s, which are the most in-demand commercial narrowbody aircraft. Our pipeline of deals is strong and we look forward to announcing more acquisitions in the near future.”
