GECAS finalises order for 10 787-10s

GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) announced (19-Sep-2013) it completed an order with Boeing for 10 787-10s. The order completes the commitment originally announced during the 2013 Paris Air Show in Jun-2013. Boeing stated the order builds momentum in the airplane leasing market for the 787-10. The order is valued at USD2.9 billion at list prices. The GECAS deliveries begin in 2019. Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Ray Conner said that given GECAS' position as a leader in the leasing industry the order is a "strong statement about the capabilities of this highly efficient airplane". The 787-10 has 102 orders and commitments from five customers. These 787-10s bring the total number of airplanes GECAS has ordered from Boeing to 598 since 1995, including 737s, 747s, 757s, 767s and 777s. To date, GECAS has taken delivery of 451 of the aircraft.
