GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) announced today that it signed a firm order for 12 widebody Airbus A330neos as well as 20 long-range single-aisle A321XLRs. The commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric will then offer these to airlines around the world for their passenger services. The announcement comes in the form of an emailed press release, with comments being made at the Dubai Air Show. The agreement for the 20 A321XLRs includes 13 new planes but also the “upsizing” of seven A321s in its existing backlog. According to the press release, this latest order takes the total number of A330 family aircraft ordered by GECAS to 45. Furthermore, all variants of the A320 Family now total 588.
