Air Lease Corporation has placed six Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft on long-term lease with LOT Polish Airlines, with all deliveries scheduled for October 2022. The new Aircraft will join LOT’s existing five Boeing 737-8s and one 787 Dreamliner on lease from ALC.
On Wednesday (October 5, 2022), Air Lease Corporation (ALC) announced the placement of six Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft on long-term lease with LOT Polish Airlines, all of which will be delivered this month. Currently, LOT also has five Boeing 737-8s and one 787 Dreamliner on lease from ALC.
In Wednesday’s announcement, Air Lease Corporation’s Executive Chairman, Steven F. Udvar-Házy, said,
“We are honored and pleased to expand our long relationship with LOT by leasing the airline six modern 737-8 jet aircraft, in addition to the six airplanes currently on lease, doubling the size of the ALC owned portfolio to 12 aircraft at LOT. ALC has played an important role in the recent fleet modernization program of LOT since late 2017 and these six additional aircraft will support LOT’s network and development strategy.”
Also commenting on the 737-8 lease placements, LOT Polish Airlines’ Chief Operating Officer, Maciej Wilk, said,
“LOT is in the process of selecting a new fleet in the regional and narrow-body segment. Until a supplier is selected, we are planning to source aircraft as a bridging solution - the first Embraer 175 and 190 have already joined LOT Polish Airlines’ fleet and will soon be followed by the Boeing 737-8. I am very pleased to see these reliable and economical aircraft completing our single-aisle fleet.”
