BOC Aviation orders up to 25 PW GTF shipsets

BOC Aviation has placed orders for ten firm and 15 option shipsets of Pratt & Whitney GTF engines to power new Airbus A320neo family aircraft.

The GTF engine is offered through Pratt & Whitney, and will power aircraft already in the BOC order book and scheduled for delivery in 2023 and 2024.

“This repeat order reflects the highly efficient performance of the GTF engine that will continue to power a significant portion of our A320 family fleet and orderbook,” said Robert Martin, managing director and CEO of BOC Aviation. “We have acquired 47 shipsets of GTF engines to date. Our relationship with Pratt & Whitney and its related entities dates back to 1997. Since then, engines produced by Pratt & Whitney have powered 230 aircraft in our portfolio, representing more than 25% of the total aircraft that we have purchased or committed to purchase.”

BOC Aviation is a global aircraft operating leasing company, with 536 aircraft owned, managed or on order and leased to 87 airlines worldwide in 38 countries as of June 30, 2021.
