ALC Firms Its Dreamliner Deal

Air Lease Corporation (ALC) has finalised its order for 30 787-10 and three 787-9 Dreamliners. The deal, which is worth $9.4bn at list prices, was first disclosed at the Paris Air Show earlier this year. "The performance characteristics of the 787-10 will build on the 787 family's success in the marketplace by providing the ideal size, capabilities and economical operating costs for medium to long-haul markets," said ALC's CEO, Steven Udvar-Hazy. The 787-9 completed its first flight this week and is scheduled for first delivery in mid-2014. The new 787-10 was launched in June 2013. "ALC is an ideal partner to help establish the 787-10 in the airplane leasing market," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Ray Conner. "The ALC team has an excellent understanding of its airline customers' requirements and a successful track record placing Boeing airplanes that meet those needs."
