AIG is selling its aircraft leasing business International Lease Finance Corp. to AerCap in a cash-and-stock deal valued at about $5.4 billion.

International Lease Finance has almost 1,000 owned and managed aircraft and has commitments to buy about 330 high-demand, fuel-efficient aircraft. It will become a subsidiary of AerCap.

American International Group Inc. said on Monday that this is the last major sale of one of its non-core assets.

AerCap, based in the Netherlands, has offices in the United States, Ireland, China, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.
