Air Lease Corporation has announced the delivery of one new Boeing 787-9 aircraft (SP-LSC) on lease to LOT Polish Airlines. This Boeing aircraft joins three Boeing 737-8 MAX 8 aircraft currently on lease to LOT from ALC, with an additional three Boeing 737-8 MAX 8 aircraft confirmed to deliver in 2018 and 2019 from ALC’s order book with Boeing.
“LOT is the first airline in Europe whose long-haul fleet consists only of Dreamliners. By the end of 2019, we will have 15 Dreamliners in our fleet,” said Rafał Milczarski, LOT’s CEO. “They are still considered to be the most state-of-the-art aircraft in the world, offering unparalleled travel experience in that class. I am convinced that the Boeing 787-9s will significantly increase the number of seats on the existing most popular routes. Boeing 787-9 will be perfect for our flagship flights to selected American and Asian destinations and will enable us to launch completely new routes as well. Investments in our fleet and fruitful cooperation with ALC enable us to grow and gain the leading position on the market in the Central and Eastern Europe,” added Rafał Milczarski.
In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Poland’s renewed independence, this Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will feature a special patriotic livery designed by LOT.
