ILFC leases 2 Dreamliners from Boeing for Neos

14 May 2014

Boeing (NYSE: BA) and International Lease Finance Corp. have announced that two 787-8 Dreamliners will be leased by ILFC to the Italian carrier Neos.

Based at Milan Malpensa Airport in northern Italy, Neos will become the country´s first 787 operator when it takes delivery of the airplane in 2018.

Neos currently operates an all-Boeing fleet of six Next-Generation 737-800s and two 767-300ER (Extended Range) airplanes. The airline will use the 787s to provide even greater passenger comfort and service, and expand its route network. ILFC is Boeing´s largest 787 customer with orders for 74 of the airplane type. This is not an incremental 787 order for Boeing.

Founded in 2001, Neos caters to Italy´s leisure market providing flights predominately from Milan, but also other major Italian cities, to destinations across Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
