The aircraft are scheduled for delivery in November and December 2012.
GECAS President and CEO Norman C.T. Liu said: “GECAS is very pleased to be partnering with the flag carrier of Myanmar.

This is another example of our strategy to build our business in emerging markets,” he added.
With this contract, Myanmar becomes the 76th country where GECAS leases aircraft.
