GE Capital Aviation Services Limited (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing unit of GE, announced delivery of three owned Embraer 170s to Régional Compagnie Aérienne Européenne, the wholly owned regional airline subsidiary of Air France, to help with the carrier’s fleet expansion.
By the end of June, GECAS will redeliver six Embraer 170s to the airline, which is building an all-jet fleet. Three of these six aircraft are serviced by GECAS on behalf of other owners.
Régional currently operates a fleet of some 50 aircraft to nearly 50 destinations in Europe.
