BOC Aviation finalizes $2bn 160-engine deal with CFM

BOC Aviation has placed an order with CFM International for 160 engines, following its order for 80 B737s on 25th August.

The agreement with CFM includes 100 LEAP-1B engines for its 50 B737 MAX 8 aircraft, and 60 CFM56-7BE engines for its 30 B737-800s. The deal is valued at $2 billion at list prices. Both aircraft types are exclusively powered by CFM engines.

BOC Aviation managing director and chief executive Robert Martin said: “We think that the LEAP-1B-powered 737 MAX is a great combination that will bring impressive operating economics to our customers. This new order reinforces our customers’ satisfaction in what CFM has delivered with the CFM56 product line and our confidence in the new LEAP engine.”
