Boeing delivers new JAL B737 to leasing firm


Boeing has delivered a new Boeing 737-800 aircraft to Ireland-based leasing company, Avolon.

The new single-aisle jet will now be leased by Japan Airlines (JAL). The delivery is the first of 12 B737-800s ordered by Avolon in December 2009.

“We are pleased to take delivery of the first of twelve new Next-Generation 737-800s from Boeing,” said John Higgins, President & Chief Commercial Officer of Avolon. “Key to delivering enhanced profitability for our lessees is selecting high-performance aircraft with superior fuel economy.  Having a forward delivery stream of new aircraft, coupled with our industry leading sale and leaseback and other aircraft financing capabilities, provides our customers with a fully-rounded service offering.”

The new aircraft can seat 162 passengers in two-class configuration.
