GECAS finalizes its order for 10 Boeing 787-10s

GECAS 787-10 (GECAS)(LR)

GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric (NYSE: GE), and Boeing announced they have completed an order for 10 787-10 Dreamliners. The order completes the commitment originally announced during the 2013 Paris Air Show in June and builds momentum in the airplane leasing market for the 787-10. The GECAS deliveries begin in 2019.

The new 787-10, launched in June 2013, will extend and complement the family, carrying 300 to 330 passengers up to 7,000 nautical miles (12,964 km) and accommodating more than 90 percent of the world’s twin-aisle routes. The 787-10 also will be 25 percent more fuel efficient than airplanes of its size today and more than 10 percent better than anything being offered by the competition for the future.

The 787-10 has 102 orders and commitments from five customers.

These 787-10s bring the total number of airplanes GECAS has ordered from Boeing to 598 since 1995, including 737s, 747s, 757s, 767s and 777s. To date, GECAS has taken delivery of 444 of the airplanes.
