“We have increased our order for the A321 in response to the market trend and appetite for larger capacity single-aisle aircraft,” said Robert Martin, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of BOC Aviation. “Our incremental order reflects the continued popularity, confidence and reliability of the A320 Family among our customers.”

BOC Aviation is one of Airbus’ top 10 customers.

“The A320 Family aircraft is a sound financial asset as confirmed by leading lessor BOC Aviation, based in the world’s fastest growing aviation market,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer Customers. “This order also confirms the trend by customers to increase capacity by upsizing to larger aircraft models.”
