<p style="text-align: justify;">May 19, 2017: Kalitta Air, a leading provider of air cargo transportation, has taken delivery of the first of two leased 747-400F factory freighters from GECAS.<br /><br />While GECAS has previously provided debt financing to Kalitta on several 747-400’s (both factory and converted freighters), this delivery is the first aircraft on lease to Kalitta from GECAS, adding capacity to Kalitta Air’s existing fleet of more than 15 widebody freighters.<br /><br />Serving a wide range of clients — from DHL to the US military – Kalitta combines global air cargo service with comprehensive airframe and engine maintenance solutions. <a title="GECAS" href="http://www.gecas.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">GECAS</a>, a consistent lender to <a title="Kalitta Air" href="http://www.kalittaair.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Kalitta Air</a> over the past several years, welcomes the chance to now provide leasing solutions to this air cargo industry stalwart.<br />“Based on our relationship and its continued growth,” noted Chris Damianos, GECAS’ EVP & manager Specialty Markets, “GECAS is pleased to transition these 747-400Fs to Kalitta.”<br /><br />“GECAS has been very supportive of Kalitta Air as we have renewed our fleet,” stated founder and CEO, Conrad Kalitta.<br /><br />Boeing’s 747F, the most broadly used large widebody freighter, offers fuel and operational efficiencies along with the industry’s only nose-loading configuration, which is a true differentiator to cargo operators and their customers.</p>
