International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC), a wholly owned subsidiary of
American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG), announced today at a launch
ceremony held in China that it has partnered with Beijing-based Tsinghua

expertise and experience. ILFC is built on a world-class team of experts,
whose knowledge and in-depth understanding of our trade make ILFC a leading
aircraft lessor and a globally recognized brand in the industry,” added
