BOC Aviation finalizes $8.8bn order with Boeing

BOC Aviation has placed an order for 80 B737s, which includes its first order for the re-engined MAX variant. The deal consists of 30 737-800s and 50 737 MAX 8 aircraft, to be delivered between 2016 and 2021.

The lessor also ordered two additional 777-300ERs, which have already been placed with an existing customer.

The order is worth up to $8.8 bn.

Robert Martin, BOC Aviation’s managing director and chief executive, said: “Following the successful placement of the 50 Next Generation 737 aircraft that we ordered in 2006, this is a continuation of our commitment to be responsive to airline customers which are expanding or replacing older fleets.”

“We want to be in the younger end of the market. We want the most fuel-efficient planes,” Martin added.

The new order follows BOC’s deal for 43 A320-Family aircraft, including seven of the re-engined A320neo, at the Farnborough Airshow in July.
