Air Lease Corporation AL announced the delivery of one new Boeing 737-8 aircraft on long-term lease to Belarusian carrier — Belavia. It is the first of five new Boeing 737-8s jets to be delivered to Belavia from Air Lease's order book with The Boeing Company BA. This modern and fuel efficient aircraft has CFM LEAP-1B engines.  

For passengers, these new modern jets will be equipped with separate and better business class cabins consisting of 12 comfortable seats. By taking delivery of the jet from Air Lease, the largest airline of the Republic of Belarus, has enhanced service for its passengers travelling in business class. Belavia, previously operating with an aging Boeing 737 fleet, is in the process of modernizing its fleet. Air Lease’s contribution to the carrier’s fleet-modernization exercise will significantly boost Belavia operations in the domestic and the international markets.

Besides this delivery to Belavia, Air Lease also announced the delivery of one new Airbus A330-900 to Delta Air Lines DAL under sale-leaseback with Blackbird Capital II. Notably, one more such jet is supposed to be delivered by Air Lease to Delta.
