Delivery of the remaining aircraft is expected to be completed in the coming months.

Firoz Tarapore, Chief Executive Officer of DAE commented: “We are delighted to be in a position to offer a meaningful solution to American Airlines, a long-term customer of DAE, and to see the Boeing 737 MAX return to service.  We are also pleased to further invest in these technologically advanced and fuel-efficient aircraft types in line with our commitment to environmental sustainability.
