LOS ANGELES, CA, August 1, 2011 — Air Lease Corporation (ALC) has delivered its first new Embraer aircraft from the direct order placed at the Farnborough International Air-Show in 2010. This is ALC’s first of six CF34-10E7-powered E190s leased to TRIP Linhas Aéreas.
“The strength of our order book containing modern, fuel efficient aircraft and key delivery positions will drive long term growth at ALC. We are very pleased to see this strategy unfold, as we deliver the first E190 from our order book to TRIP, Brazil’s largest regional airline. We look forward to continuing our long term partnerships with both Embraer and TRIP.” said Steven F. Udvar-Hazy, Chairman and CEO of ALC.
The E-Jet Family is known for their versatility among regional narrow body aircraft. Last month’s Paris Air Show order brought ALC’s current contract with Embraer to 30 E-Jets, including 25 E190s and 5 E175s.
