BOC Aviation Limited announced that it has ordered 20 new Airbus A320neo aircraft. A minimum of ten and up to 12 of these A320neo aircraft have been committed for lease to Avianca S.A. (“Avianca”) based in Bogota, Colombia.

“We are delighted to establish a relationship with BOC Aviation, who are one of the world’s foremost lessors, and we sincerely value the confidence they are showing in Avianca and the support to our long term plan,” said Adrian Neuhauser, CFO of Avianca.

“We are thrilled to welcome Avianca as a new customer, and we congratulate the airline on its 100th anniversary,” said Robert Martin, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, BOC Aviation. “This addition of 20 new Airbus A320NEO aircraft reflects our disciplined investment strategy of building our portfolio with popular and in-demand new technology aircraft that provide reliability and operational efficiency.
