BOC Aviation Limited ordered 40 additional Boeing 737-8 jets. With this order, BOC Aviation will advance its strategy of purchasing new, fuel-efficient, environmentally sustainable airplanes that are in demand.
“We are pleased to continue to build on our existing relationship with Boeing, with this 40-aircraft incremental order for the fuel-efficient Boeing 737-8 aircraft. The incremental order takes our total 737 MAX 8 orderbook with Boeing to 80 aircraft,” David Walton, deputy managing director and chief operating officer at BOC Aviation, said. “We look forward to continuing to provide one of the industry’s most technologically advanced aircraft for delivery on lease to our airline customers; and to support their sustainable growth over the balance of this decade.”
“We are proud that BOC Aviation continues to invest in the 737-8 with its industry-leading versatility and ability to fly almost any short- and medium-haul market profitably,” Ryan Weir, vice president of global leasing sales at Boeing Commercial Airplane, said. “We look forward to more opportunities to expand our relationship to support BOC Aviation and its customers.”
