FLY Leasing buys one 787-8

FLY Leasing has taken delivery of a new 787-8 aircraft. The aircraft was acquired through a purchase and leaseback agreement with LATAM previously announced in July. The purchase was financed with funding from a European bank and FLY’s own cash.

“This new B787 adds one of the most advanced and fuel-efficient commercial aircraft to our fleet,” said Colm Barrington, CEO of FLY. “This is the ninth aircraft we have acquired this year, bringing our total 2013 acquisitions to more than $500 million and our portfolio to 108 aircraft. With a strong reserve of available capital, we are continuing to execute on our strategy of growing our fleet with the most modern aircraft, which will continue to increase our cash flow and earnings per share.”

LATAM is one of the largest airline groups in the world, providing air services to approximately 150 destinations in 22 countries.
