Air Lease Corporation announced the delivery of the first of two new Boeing 787-9 aircraft on long-term lease to Air Tahiti Nui.
“We are pleased to announce this milestone delivery of ALC’s first of two new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners to our friends at Air Tahiti Nui. This aircraft and the second one to follow in early 2019 will bring a new dimension of long-range travel experience for Air Tahiti Nui’s customers, with increased efficiency, better economics and comfort compared to the Airbus A340 aircraft they are replacing,” said Steven F. Udvar-Házy, Executive Chairman of Air Lease Corporation.
“ALC has worked very closely with Air Tahiti Nui’s management and shareholders to develop a new optimized long-range fleet plan designed for the airline’s route network,” said Marc Baer, Executive Vice President of Air Lease Corporation.
“The new ALC Boeing 787-9s perfectly fit the airline’s strategic requirements as the best in class aircraft. ALC is honored and proud to work with ATN and support their fleet upgrade to the 787.”
