Air Lease Corporation announced a long-term lease agreement with LOT Polish Airlines for a new Boeing 787-9 aircraft with Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines.
The aircraft is from ALC’s order book with Boeing and will deliver in the second quarter of 2018.
Alex Khatibi, Air Lease Corporation’s Executive Vice President, said:
“We are very pleased to announce this new 787-9 lease placement with LOT. In addition to the six new 737 MAX 8s ALC placed with LOT last year (first delivery November 2017), the Dreamliner offers new efficiencies and an enhanced passenger experience that will better serve their growing route networks.”
LOT offers direct long-haul flights to New York, Chicago, Newark, Los Angeles, Toronto, Beijing, Tokyo and Seoul. It flies one of the youngest fleets in Europe and, as the only airline, operates the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the world’s most advanced aircraft, on all long-haul connections.
