The order, with deliveries into 2017, includes 15 737-900ER (extended range) and 23 737-800 airplanes. Boeing said that it is the largest order placed by a leasing company for the 737-900ER, the largest and newest member of the Boeing Next-Generation 737 family. This is also the largest order placed by CIT for Boeing airplanes.

The Boeing 737 is a short- to medium-range, twin-engine narrow-body jet airliner. It was originally developed as a shorter, lower-cost twin-engine airliner derived from Boeing’s 707 and 727. The 737 models can be divided into three generations, including nine major variants. The “Original” models consist of the 737-100, 737-200/-200 Advanced. The “Classic” models consist of the 737-300, 737-400, and 737-500. The “Next Generation” variants consist of the 737-600, 737-700/-700ER, 737-800, and 737-900/-900ER.

Founded in 1908, the CIT Group, Inc. is a global commercial finance company that provides a comprehensive set of financial products and advisory services to the middle market.
