Guangzhou-based China Southern Airlines has finalised long term lease agreements with Air Lease Corporation (ALC) for five new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.
Three are scheduled for delivery in 2019, starting in the first quarter, with the remaining two following in 2020. The General Electric GEnx powered aircraft come from ALC’s existing order book with Boeing.
ALC currently has Airbus A320s, A321s, and Boeing 737-800s placed with China Southern.
“We are pleased to further grow our relationship with one of the premier airlines in China and a long term strategic customer for ALC,” said Jie Chen, ALC’s Executive VP and Managing Director, Asia.
