Leasing company BOC Aviation Limited, which has dealt extensively with Indian carriers, has announced the delivery of its 200th Boeing plane to Lion Air Group.
The next generation Boeing 737-800 plane will be operated by its Malaysian affiliate Malindo Air.
“BOC Aviation had a very successful 2016 and marks another milestone in 2017 with our 200th aircraft delivery from Boeing,” said Robert Martin, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the lessor.
BOC Aviation has taken delivery of approximately half of the 200 airplanes directly from Boeing, comprising the 737 and 777 aircraft families, while the other half has been a combination of purchase and lease backs from airline customers.
BOC Aviation’s cumulative orders for new Boeing aircraft now total 297 aircraft from the Boeing Next-Generation 737, 737 MAX, and 777 aircraft families.
