(1)

Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase in the applicable Offer at or prior to
the Early Tender Deadline; included in Total Consideration.

(2)

Includes the Early Tender Premium.

(3)

Hypothetical Total Consideration per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase in
the applicable Offer, based on a hypothetical Tender Offer Yield determined as of 10:00 A.M., New York City time, on September 22, 2020 and
assuming an Early Settlement Date (as defined below) of October 8, 2020 for each Series. The actual Tender Offer Yield used to determine the
actual Total Consideration for each Series will be calculated on the Price Determination Date (as defined below). This information is provided
for illustrative purposes only. We make no representation with respect to the actual Total Consideration that may be paid with respect to each
Series and such amounts may be greater or less than those shown depending on the Tender Offer Yield as of the Price Determination Date.
The Total Consideration will be determined taking into account the par call date, if applicable, for such Series. Excludes Accrued Interest.

All documentation relating to the Offers, including the Offer to Purchase and the Letter of Transmittal, together with any updates, are available from the Information Agent and the Tender Agent, as set forth below. The Tender Offer Documents can also be accessed at the following website: http://www.gbsc-usa.com/aercap/. The Tender Offer Documents set forth a complete description of the terms and conditions of the Offers. Holders of the Notes ("Holders") are urged to read the Tender Offer Documents carefully before making any decision with respect to the Offers.

Purpose of the Offers

The primary purpose of the Offers is to acquire the maximum principal amount of Notes up to the Maximum Tender Cap, subject to the satisfaction or waiver by us of the conditions set forth below and as further described in the Offer to Purchase. Notes that are accepted in the Offers will be purchased, retired and cancelled and will no longer remain outstanding obligations of AerCap or any of its subsidiaries. Such Notes will also be delisted from Euronext Dublin.

Details of the Offers

The Offers will still expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 21, 2020 (as the same may be extended with respect to any Offer, the "Expiration Date"). Holders still must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 6, 2020 (as the same may be extended with respect to any Offer, the "Early Tender Deadline"), to be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration and Holders who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Date will be eligible to receive only the applicable Purchase Price, which is equal to the applicable Total Consideration less the applicable Early Tender Premium, in each case as fully described in the Offer to Purchase. Tendered Notes may still be withdrawn at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 6, 2020 (as the same may be extended with respect to any Offer, the "Withdrawal Deadline"), but not thereafter, except as required by applicable law as described in the Offer to Purchase. None of the Offers is conditioned upon consummation of any of the other Offers, and each Offer otherwise operates independently from the other Offers. None of the Offers is conditioned on any minimum amount of Notes being tendered.

The applicable Total Consideration for each $1,000 in principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn before the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offers will be determined by reference to a fixed spread specified for each Series of Notes over the yield based on the bid price of the applicable Reference Security specified in the table above for such Series, as fully described in the Offer to Purchase. The consideration will still be calculated by the Dealer Managers (as defined below) at 10:00 A.M., New York City time, on October 7, 2020 (as the same may be extended with respect to any Offer, the "Price Determination Date"). The applicable Early Tender Premium for each Series of Notes is set forth in the table above. The Purchase Price for the Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offers will be calculated by taking the applicable Total Consideration for such Series of Notes and subtracting from it the applicable Early Tender Premium for such Series of Notes. In addition to the applicable Total Consideration or applicable Purchase Price, as the case may be, accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date will be paid in cash on all validly tendered Notes accepted for purchase in the Offers (the "Accrued Interest").

We reserve the right, but are under no obligation, at any point after the Early Tender Deadline and prior to the Expiration Date, to accept for purchase Notes that have been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline on a date determined at our option (such date, if any, the "Early Settlement Date"). The Total Consideration, plus Accrued Interest, for Notes that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase will be paid by us in same-day funds on such Early Settlement Date, if any. We still currently expect the Early Settlement Date, if any, to occur on October 8, 2020. The Purchase Price, plus Accrued Interest, for Notes that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn after the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Date and accepted for purchase will be paid by us in same-day funds promptly following the Expiration Date (the "Final Settlement Date"). We still currently expect the Final Settlement Date to occur promptly following the Expiration Date, on October 23, 2020.

Our obligation to accept for purchase, and to pay for, Notes that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to each Offer, up to the Maximum Tender Cap, is conditioned on the satisfaction or waiver by us of a number of conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, including the Financing Condition, in each case unless waived by us as provided in the Offer to Purchase.

The amounts of each Series of Notes that are accepted for purchase in the Offer will be determined in accordance with the priorities identified in the column "Acceptance Priority Level" in the table above. Subject to the Maximum Tender Cap, all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline having a higher Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted for purchase before any validly tendered and not validly withdrawn Notes having a lower Acceptance Priority Level, and all Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Date having a higher Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted for purchase before any Notes tendered after the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Date having a lower Acceptance Priority Level. However, any Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or before the Early Tender Deadline will be accepted for purchase in priority to Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Date even if the Notes tendered after the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Date have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or before the Early Tender Deadline. Notes of the Series in the last Acceptance Priority Level accepted for purchase in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Offers may be subject to proration such that we will only accept for purchase Notes with an aggregate purchase price up to the Maximum Tender Cap.

We expressly continue to reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to further amend, extend or, upon failure of any condition described in the Offer to Purchase to be satisfied or waived (including the Financing Condition), to terminate any of the Offers, including the right to further amend or eliminate the Maximum Tender Cap, at any time at or prior to the Expiration Date.
