GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) is an Irish-American commercial aircraft financing and leasing company. It is the largest commercial airline leasing/financing company in the world. It is part of GE Capital, a company of the large conglomerate General Electric. GECAS buys aircraft from manufacturers like Airbus and Boeing and then leases them to airlines, typically on eight year leases, usually on dry lease contracts. It also buys aircraft from airlines and leases them back. The company has three global headquarters, located in Singapore; Shannon, County Clare and Norwalk, Connecticut.
The primary competition for GECAS is AerCap, although other companies such as Air Lease Corporation, Aviation Capital Group, BBAM and SMBC Aviation Capital also compete with it.
GECAS has a fleet of over 1800 aircraft, used by 245 airlines. Nearly all aircraft owned by GECAS are powered by engines from either GE Aviation, another subsidiary of General Electric, or CFM International, a GE Aviation/Snecma joint venture.
GECAS’s livery looks so great on the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner.
It will be a great addition to Infinite Flight! GECAS Had orders for 10 Boeing 787-10s. The -10 is the only 787 variant they operate.
