BOC Aviation has delivered the last of the eight Boeing 777-300ERs to Thai Airways from an agreement signed in November 2010.

The long-term lease transactions marked the first time the lessor had worked with the Thai national carrier, says BOC.

The aircraft is powered by General Electric GE90 engines.

Robert Martin, managing director and chief executive officer of BOC Aviation, says, "The size of the order and financing of a stream of widebody deliveries demonstrate BOC Aviation’s strength in helping customers manage risk on their balance sheets over an extended timeframe, so they can focus their financial resources on operations and expansion."

To date, BOC Aviation has taken delivery of a total of 31 Boeing 777 aircraft that were leased to various airlines: Thai Airways (8), Cathay Pacific (6), Malaysian Airlines (5), Air France (4), Emirates (4), Air Canada (3), and Korean Air (1).

Some of these aircraft have now been sold, says BOC.
