PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today Air Lease Corporation (NYSE: AL; “ALC”) announced the long-term
lease placement with Korean Air for ten new Boeing 787-10 aircraft.
Scheduled to deliver to the airline starting in 2021 through 2023 from
ALC’s order book with Boeing, these ten 787-10s from ALC are the first
-10 Dreamliner aircraft to be placed in Korean Air’s fleet.

“As a launch customer for the 787-10, ALC is thrilled to announce this
major lease placement introducing the 787-10 to Korean Air’s fleet, a
project we have worked on with Korean and Boeing for a long time. The
787-10 will bring new levels of Korean Air’s outstanding service to its
passengers, and provide significant revenue benefits to Korean’s global
network,” said John L. Plueger, Chief Executive Officer and President of
Air Lease Corporation.

“As we continue to innovate our product offering, the 787 Dreamliner
family will become the backbone of our long-haul fleet for many years to
come,” said Walter Cho, Chairman of Korean Air. “In addition to 25
percent improved fuel efficiency, the stretched 787-10 offers around 15
percent more space for passengers and cargo than our 787-9s, which will
be critical to our long-term business goals.”
