New York (Agencies): Dubai aircraft leasing company Aerospace Enterprise cancelled an order for 32 single aisle Boeing 737 aircrafts.

Boeing spokesman Doug Alder confirmed the name of the customer on Friday after Boeing first announced the cancellation without identifying the buyer.

He said Dubai Aerospace Enterprise, an ambitious, mainly aircraft leasing business launched in February 2006 and partially owned by the crisis-strapped government of Dubai's investment arm, still has 56 orders on Boeing's books. DAE had ordered 35 737s, 15 747s and six 777s, he said.

But as per Boeing's weekly update on changes in orders and deliveries for commercial aircraft, the DAE cancellation left orders for 737s so far this year at a net zero.

In the year to date, Boeing has also received orders for two of its long-haul 777s, from American Airlines.
