Air Lease Corporation confirms delivery of a new Airbus A350-1000 to Air Caraibes Atlantique and first new Airbus A350-1000 to FrenchBee

One of the aircraft leasing giants, Air Lease Corporation has announced the delivery of one new Airbus A350-1000 aircraft on long-term lease to Air Caraibes Atlantique and one new Airbus A350-1000 to FrenchBee, both part of Groupe Dubreuil Aéro, from ALC’s orderbook with Airbus.  The aircraft delivered to FrenchBee is the first A350-1000 to operate in the airline’s all-A350 fleet. 

“ALC is pleased to announce these two new A350-1000 deliveries to Groupe Dubreuil Aéro and be the first to introduce the aircraft type to FrenchBee,” said Steven F. Udvar-Házy, Executive Chairman of Air Lease Corporation.  “Air Caraibes Atlantique and FrenchBee are excellent partners that continue to serve France, the French Caribbean, South Indian Ocean and Pacific markets with the most technologically advanced, fuel-efficient aircraft.”

In addition to these two new A350-1000s, Groupe Dubreuil Aéro currently has three A350-900s on lease from ALC.   

Meanwhile,   to aid the struggling Vietnam Airlines, ALC has agreed on a special restructuring of lease arrangements for 18 aircraft, including 12 Airbus A321neo and six Boeing 787-10 aircraft. These agreements extend terms and revise lease economics closely tailored to the recovering economies and air travel in Vietnam and Southeast Asia.  

How many other airlines are now going to wish they advise ALC they were going to cancel all leases unless new terms could be arranged?

Air Caraïbes and French Bee become the first Green Pilot certified airlines!

Air Caraïbes and French Bee announced this week, during the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, that they became the first airlines in the world to be fully Green Pilot certified. This new label recognizes airlines that have developed a robust carbon-reducing program in their operations and have actively engaged all their employees in their green policy.

The Green Pilot certification has been designed to meet the growing demand from airlines leaders to assess, support, and improve their fuel efficiency program. This demanding certification evaluates the quality of the green policy implemented in an airline's operations and employees' commitment to this strategy.

With a thorough and transparent evaluation on training, application of fuel-saving best practices, communication, CSR, and implication in collaborative projects with the airline's ecosystem, the Green Pilot certification assesses that airlines meet the highest standards of environmental best practices, public transparency, and employee engagement.

As part of the program, once the airline is certified, educational materials are distributed to employees to improve their awareness of fuel best practices, increase the green culture and further reduce CO2 emissions.
