AerCap Holdings N.V. today announced it has signed an agreement with euroAtlantic Airways, a leading provider of ACMI services as well as charter aviation services, for the lease of two used Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners. The aircraft are scheduled to deliver in the spring of 2021, and will be the first 787s to be based in Portugal.
“We are very pleased as euroAtlantic Airways will be the first Portuguese operator of the ultra-modern 787 Dreamliner,” said Eugénio Fernandes, the CEO of the airline. “The 787’s incredible fuel efficiency and range provide tremendous flexibility for our customers as they profitably operate the airplane on a wide range of route networks and business models such as ACMI’s, Wet Lease or Charter flights.”
