GECAS orders 20 737 MAXs and 20 Next-Generation 737s

GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric (NYSE: GE), has ordered 40 737s. The order, valued at $3.9 billion at list prices, consists of 20 737 MAX 8s and 20 Next-Generation 737-800s. The order, booked in 2013, was previously attributed to an unidentified customer on Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries website.

“We ordered more 737 MAX 8s and Next-Generation 737-800s because demand continues to grow as our airline customers require more fuel-efficient aircraft to compete in the marketplace,” said Norman C.T. Liu, president and chief executive officer, GECAS. “This order further strengthens the large GECAS order book.”

The follow-on order increases the GECAS order book for the 737 MAX to 95 airplanes and the Next-Generation 737 to 387 airplanes, the most for both models by any company in the leasing industry.

“GECAS is an industry leader and this follow-on order reinforces the value of the Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX in the leasing market,” said John Wojick, senior vice president of Global Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The 737 MAX will provide GECAS’s airline customers with the best-in-class operating efficiencies and passenger amenities.”
