BOC Aviation signed leases for 10 new Airbus A320NEO aircraft to Air China. The aircraft will be powered by Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower PW1100G-JM engines and are scheduled for delivery in 2019 and 2020.

“BOC Aviation is delighted to partner once again with Air China by leasing 10 new A320NEO aircraft to assist with the airline’s fleet expansion plans,” said Robert Martin, managing director and CEO of BOC Aviation. “China remains an important market with its robust demand growth, and BOC Aviation is well placed to support this with an orderbook that comprises popular, new technology narrowbody aircraft. Air China’s choice of the A320NEO aircraft aligns with our focus on investing in the most technologically advanced aircraft models.”

BOC Aviation is a global aircraft operating leasing company with a fleet of 499 aircraft owned, managed and on order. Its owned and managed fleet was leased to 92 airlines worldwide in 40 countries and regions as of June 30, 2019.
