GECAS has made this announcement:
Following the delivery last week of Okay Airways’ first leased Boeing 737 MAX 8, GECAS signed another contract with Okay Airways for the purchase-and-leaseback with pre-delivery payment financing of two Boeing 737 MAX 8s. The aircraft, fitted with CFM LEAP-1B engines, are scheduled for delivery in July and September 2019.
Established in 2004, Okay Airways is the first privately-owned aviation company in operation in China. Based in Tianjin Binhai International Airport, the carrier currently operates an all-Boeing fleet. The new 737 MAX 8s will provide Okay with the latest technology and fuel efficiency to enhance their fleet, which services over 150 domestic and international routes and connects to approximately 70 cities.
