BOC Aviation places order for 80 Boeing 737 series planes

SINGAPORE, Aug 25 (Reuters) - BOC Aviation, the leasing subsidiary of Bank of China, said it has placed an order for a total of 80 Boeing Co 737 series aircraft for delivery from 2016 to 2021.

Monday's order comprises 50 737 Max 8 and 30 Next Generation 737-800 aircraft.

"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," said Robert Martin, managing director and CEO of Singapore-based BOC Aviation, one of the world's leading lessors.

Mondays' order follows the lessor's order for 36 Airbus A320ceo and seven A320neo planes at the Farnborough airshow in July. [ID::nWEB00PNM] (Reporting by Anshuman Daga)
