ALC places two new 737-800s and four new 737 MAX 8 with Sunwing Airlines

Air Lease Corporation has announced long term lease agreements with Sunwing Airlines (Canada) covering two new Boeing 737-800 aircraft and four new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft. These aircraft, all from ALC’s order book, are scheduled to deliver over a four year period commencing in 2016.

“ALC is pleased to support Sunwing’s current and new generation single aisle fleet program. The six new aircraft complement our Boeing 737-800 currently under lease with Sunwing,” said John L. Plueger, President and Chief Operating Officer of Air Lease Corporation.

President of Sunwing Airlines, Mark Williams, commented, “The acquisition of our new Boeing 737-800 and 737 MAX 8 aircraft is an integral part of our overall expansion plan across an increasing number of both Canadian and U.S. gateways. This year we will be operating flights out of 45 Canadian and U.S. local airports to over 40 different destinations across North and South America, and the Caribbean. As we continue to grow, having aircraft that will enable us to offer a reliable, cost-effective and environmentally-conscious service is paramount. So we are delighted to be able to include the new 737 MAX 8 in our fleet for the first time.”
