Singapore-based lessor BOC Aviation has finalised its order for ten new Boeing 737 MAX 10s. The memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the order was placed at the Paris Air Show on 19 June 2017.

The order is valued at approximately $1.25 billion, based on current list prices.

Robert Martin, managing director and chief executive officer of BOC Aviation, said: “We are pleased to be adding the Boeing 737 MAX 10 aircraft to our future delivery pipeline, which offers airlines greater capacity combined with excellent operating costs and fuel efficiency.

“As a launch customer for the programme, this demonstrates the strength of our relationship with Boeing and will help us continue to deliver superior solutions for our airline customers.”

BOC has 348 outstanding orders, purchases and deliveries, including 84 737 MAX aircraft. Boeing has received 3803 orders for MAX aircraft and has delivered six so far.

Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president, Asia Pacific & India sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said: “Boeing is thrilled to finalise this deal for ten 737 MAX 10s with BOC Aviation. The 737 MAX 10, with the lowest seat costs of any airplane, will provide superior value to BOC Aviation’s customers around the world.”
