Myanma Airways' 1st Embraer E190 Leased From GECAS Arrives in Myanmar

GE Capital Aviation Services Limited (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of GE, announced delivery of the first leased Embraer E190 aircraft to Myanma Airways, the flag carrier of Myanmar.

The aircraft was previously leased to a customer in the U.S. and was transitioned to Myanmar over the last several weeks. It is the first E190 to join the Myanma Airways fleet.

Myanma Airways will complete flight crew training and other transition work by the end of 2012. GECAS is scheduled to deliver a second leased Embraer E190 in early 2013 before Myanma Airways inaugurates domestic and international flights with the aircraft.

Established in 1948, Myanma Airways is the only state-owned airline of Myanmar, currently serving all major domestic destinations from its main base at Yangon International Airport.
