BOC Aviation orders two new A320s from Airbus
Global aircraft operating leasing company BOC Aviation has placed an order to purchase two new Airbus A320 aircraft for an undisclosed sum.
Set to be delivered this year, the newly ordered aircraft will be placed on lease to an unknown Asian airline.
The latest deal has brought BOC Aviation’s total aircraft ordered, purchased and delivered from Airbus to 367 planes, which include 330 A320 family and 28 A330 aircraft.
BOC Aviation managing director and CEO Robert Martin said: “The addition of this pair of A320CEO aircraft reflects its enduring popularity with our customer base, given the reliability and fuel-efficiency it provides.
“The A320 family aircraft continues to remain a strong workhorse for short-haul fleets and remains a core component of our portfolio."
Earlier this month, the company took delivery of a next-generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which has already been delivered on lease to Lion Air Group.
Lion Air Group’s Malaysian affiliate Malindo Air will operate the Boeing aircraft.
BOC Aviation currently has a mixed fleet of 483 owned, managed and on order aircraft, which are leased to 68 airlines operating in 32 countries worldwide.
