PARIS -- June 19, 2013

International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC), a wholly owned subsidiary of
American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG) has selected Pratt & Whitney
PurePower PW1100G-JM engines to power an additional 30 A320neo Family aircraft
bringing ILFC’s total commitment to 180 engines. Pratt & Whitney is a division
of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

“The selection of Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1100G-JM engines to power these
new A320neo Family aircraft speaks directly to ILFC’s commitment to bringing
the most advanced technology to our global customer network,” said ILFC Chief
Executive Officer Henri Courpron. “We’re pleased to further develop our
strategic alignment with Pratt & Whitney to provide our customers with the
competitive advantages of the PurePower engine’s performance and lower
operating costs.”

“Pratt & Whitney is excited to build on its long-standing partnership with
ILFC on this PurePower PW1100G-JM engine order,” said Todd Kallman, Pratt &
Whitney Commercial Engines President. “Compared to today’s engines the
PurePower engine offers increased operational and environmental efficiencies
that we are confident will serve ILFC’s customers well.”

These ILFC A320neo Family aircraft will be powered by two PurePower engines.
Pratt & Whitney has announced orders for more than 3,500 engines that include
announced and unannounced firm orders, plus options. The PurePower engine uses
an advanced gear system allowing the engine’s fan to operate at a different
speed than the low-pressure compressor and turbine. The combination of the
gear system and an all-new advanced core delivers the fuel efficiency and
environmental benefits.
