                                                     Blue Air Boeing 737-800  AerCap CEO: Airlines Extend Leases On Older Aircraft Airlines are extending a substantial number of leases for older aircraft to take advantage of lower fuel prices, and are deferring deliveries of new jets, according to AerCap CEO Aengus Kelly. Affected aircraft types are mainly Airbus A340s, and Boeing 747s and 757s. Kelly also expects demand to grow for used Boeing 777s and Airbus A330s, which will be coming off their first leases in significant quantities in the next 1–3 years. “We have seen lots of these cases,” Kelly said on the sidelines of the IATA annual general meeting here. Leases are being extended by 2–3 years before the aircraft are retired, but not if heavy engine maintenance checks would be required to continue operation, he said. Kelly said he has not seen many cases where leases are extended beyond a few years. AerCap Delivers First of Two New Airbus A350 XWB Aircraft to Cathay Paci
