Air Lease Corporation (ALC) announced today long-term lease agreements with Belavia-Belarusian Airlines for four new CFM LEAP-1B25-powered Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft scheduled for delivery in 2019 and 2020. The first aircraft will deliver from ALC’s order book with Boeing in May 2019.
The new MAX 8s will join the other Boeing 737s including the growing fleet of Boeing 737-800s (top).
“Belavia-Belarusian Airlines is systematically continuing to implement the strategy of the fleet renewal, thanks to cooperation with such reliable partners as ALC. The acquisition of four next-generation aircraft on a lease will contribute to the further development of the airline and, consequently, to the improvement of the quality of passenger service,” said Anatoly Gusarov, Director General of Belavia-Belarusian Airlines. “We hope that the delivery of the Boeing 737 MAX will allow our passengers to start travelling only with positive impressions and will make flights as comfortable as possible,” continued Anatoly Gusarov.
The new aircraft will help the carrier to retire its older Boeing 737-300s and 737-500s.
