Norwalk, Connecticut, U.S. - American aircraft leasing company GECAS scrapped an order for 69 Boeing 737 MAX jets as the company revises its order book in the wake of the global outbreak, which affected airline industry drastically.

Demand for airplanes has taken a beating as the virus outbreak brought travel to a virtual halt, forcing several airlines to defer deliveries of planes to a later date.

“Today’s agreement will help GECAS better align our available fleet with the needs of our global customer base,”

said Greg Conlon, chief executive officer of GECAS, in a statement.

The move comes days after Boeing posted a total of 150 737 MAX cancellations in March, including 75 previously reported from Irish leasing company Avolon. The remaining 75 cancellations were from buyers including Brazil’s GOL.

The unit, GECAS, maintains 29 MAX aircraft in its fleet and has 82 jets on order from Boeing.
