BOC Aviation has placed an order with CFM International for 160 engines, following its order for 80 Boeing 737s on 25 August.

The agreement with the engine maker includes 100 Leap-1B engines for its 50 737 Max 8 aircraft and 60 CFM56-7BE engines for its 30 737-800s. The deal is valued at $2 billion at list prices.

Both aircraft types are exclusively powered by CFM engines.

“We think that the Leap-1B-powered 737 Max is a great combination that will bring impressive operating economics to our customers,” says BOC Aviation’s managing director and chief executive Robert Martin.

“This new order reinforces our customers’ satisfaction in what CFM has delivered with the CFM56 product line and our confidence in the new Leap engine.”
