BOC Aviation, the Singapore-based aircraft
leasing subsidiary of Bank of China, has signed a firm order for
the purchase of 25 A320 Family aircraft comprising 13 A320ceo and
12 A320neo family aircraft.
The order comprises A320 and A321
variants. BOC Aviation has not yet unveiled its engine selection.
Wednesday’s order from BOC Aviation for 25 more A320
Family aircraft comes less than a year after their previous order
for 50 A320 Family aircraft, confirming the fast pace at which the
market requires fuel efficient single-aisle planes.
“The Airbus A320 and A321 family has a proven track record of
operational efficiency as well as the support of airline customers
seeking a superior travel experience for passengers taking
short-haul and medium-haul routes,’’ said Robert Martin, BOC
Aviation’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer. “The
fact that we have placed orders for 75 of these aircraft in less
than a year speaks of our commitment to our customers to be their
lessor of choice with modern, fuel-efficient aircraft for their
benefit and for the comfort of their customers.”
Including this latest purchase agreement, BOC Aviation’s
cumulative orders for new Airbus aircraft reach a total of 212
(206 A320 Family and six A330 Family aircraft).
