and Boeing have agreed to reduce the number of LCAL
orders,' said Fakher Daghestani, Boeing's Middle East communications director.
According to Boeing the order was placed last May, making LCAL the first leasing company to commit to the 787.
LCAL has selected Rolls-Royce's Trent 1000 engine for a number of its 787s, and is negotiating with GE on its GEnx engine as well.
The deal - announced yesterday at the Dubai Air Show - will see Derby-based Rolls supply Trent 1000 engines for six Boeing 787 Dreamliners ordered by LCAL, which is based in Hong Kong.
Mike Terrett, president civil aerospace at Rolls-Royce, said: "The Trent 1000-powered Boeing 787 will enable LCAL to offer customers high levels of efficiency and superior economics across a range of routes.
The emergence of LCAL demonstrates the opportunities inherent in today's marketplace and we're delighted to be involved with this exciting new venture at an early stage in its development.
Clive Joy, chairman and chief executive of LCAL, added: "The evolutionary development of the Trent family means that the Trent 1000 provides us with the best balance between innovative new technology and proven capabilities.
LCAL has developed innovative financing solutions and invested in projects that have boosted private sector investment in energy efficiency.
The merger will maintain momentum achieved by LCAL in the market, and to allow the CEFC to build-on and scale-up the platforms developed by LCAL.
LCAL has also played an important role in encouraging organisations to voluntarily reduce their emissions through the administration of Government's National Carbon Offset Standard Carbon Neutral Program.
All existing LCAL contracts and investment programs will remain in place and contacts for these programs will remain unchanged.
It will take two 787s from ILFC in 2010-11 and said it plans to sign a contract with LCAL
for an additional three of the type.
