Our Story

GECAS is the global commercial aircraft financing and leasing business of GE.
Our story began in 1967, when we contracted our first aircraft lease agreement, a landmark that would help launch a new industry, allow easier access to capital for the world’s rapidly expanding airline industry and enable lower cost air travel for millions of travelers. Today, GECAS offers the largest fleet and widest array of solutions to meet customer needs. With a modern, innovative fleet in service and on order, GECAS is ready to drive your business higher.
Our mission is helping to build the world’s commercial aviation market. GECAS’ comprehensive leasing and lending solutions, global reach, and local teams contribute to our customers’ success.
