“We are very pleased to celebrate our ten-year business anniversary with BOC Aviation with the addition of the final Boeing 737-800NG aircraft to our fleet. BOC Aviation has always provided great support to Skymark and we all look forward to expanding our relationship further,” said Masahiko Ichie, president and representative director, Skymark Airlines.

“BOC Aviation has been instrumental in the long-running success of the Boeing 737 program, bringing the airplane and its signature efficiency and reliability to operators around the world,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing for The Boeing Company. “We are honoured to be partners with BOC Aviation as they continue to grow their leasing business. We congratulate them on reaching this important milestone and thank them for their ongoing confidence in Boeing and the 737. Our team looks forward to working together with BOC Aviation to reach more milestones in the years ahead.”
