BOC Aviation has placed an order for 80 Boeing 737s, which includes its first order for the re-engined Max variant.

The deal comprises of 30 737-800s and 50 737-8 Max aircraft, to be delivered between 2016 and 2021.

The lessor also ordered two additional 777-300ERs, which have already been placed with an existing customer.

“Following the successful placement of the 50 Next Generation 737 aircraft that we ordered in 2006, this is a continuation of our commitment to be responsive to airline customers which are expanding or replacing older fleets,” says Robert Martin, BOC Aviation’s managing director and chief executive.

Prior to the latest order, Flightglobal’s Ascend Fleets database showed that BOC Aviation has 253 aircraft in service and 132 on order.

Singapore-based BOC Aviation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bank of China.
