"This plex transaction with an aggressive delivery schedule is another example of how GECAS is more than just a lessor," said Antony Snelleman, senior vice president and region manager for GECAS. "We're helping Sriwijaya build its business in a country that needs more airline service."

GECAS estimates double digit growth in the Indonesian passenger market for the next two or three years.

"PT Sriwijaya is growing very fast and having a partner like GECAS that can quickly deliver aircraft to expand our business is critical," said Chandra Lie, chief executive officer of PT Sriwijaya Airlines. "Only a pany like GECAS with their expertise and experience could make this transaction such a success."
