BOC Aviation orders five new Airbus A321 aircraft
The aircraft are scheduled for delivery in 2017.
“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.”
John Leahy, chief operating officer Customers, Airbus, said, “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. This order also confirms the trend by customers to increase capacity by upsizing to larger aircraft models.”
Following this latest purchase agreement, BOC Aviation’s cumulative orders to date for new Airbus aircraft have reached a total of 311 aircraft, comprising 299 aircraft from the A320 family, including 67 A321s and 12 A330 aircraft.
