GECAS to lease three A320s to GetJet

GECAS has agreed to lease three A320-200 aircraft to GetJet Airlines with all deliveries to take place in spring 2019.

“The addition of these new aircraft is an important step in our strategy to fill the gaps in the market and swiftly adjust to the current context of the rapidly changing aviation market,” said Aleksandr Celiadin, Executive Chairman of GetJet Airlines.

“Recent developments in our region have forced us to react quickly to satisfy growing passenger flows and support our wet lease customers and tour operators. Once the A320 are delivered, we will be operating a fleet of 15 aircraft – seven A320s and seven Boeing 737 classics, and our recently added wide-body Airbus A330. This larger fleet provides us with exciting opportunities to serve new clients and offer an expanded range of operations.”

“As the first airline in the Baltics to have an Airbus A330 in our fleet, we can offer long-haul ACMI and long-term wet lease solutions with both wide-body and narrow-body aircraft. Having recently secured long-term contracts with the region’s largest tour operators and legacy airlines in Europe, we believe we are well positioned in our niche as a one-stop shop,” said A. Celiadin.

“Given the wealth of aviation experience presented by the GetJet Airlines management team, GECAS is delighted to support their growth plans with these aircraft,” expressed GECAS’ Shairon Sexton, VP, Sales and Marketing, Europe and Canada.
