Singapore’s BOC Aviation orders 30 Airbus A320 planes for 2012-14


PARIS — Singapore-based aircraft leasing firm BOC Aviation announced on Wednesday it had ordered 30 Airbus A320 medium-range airliners for delivery between 2012 and 2014. The company did not say how much it was paying, but the average price of the aircraft on Jan. 30 was about US$80 million (57 million euros). This would point to an overall catalogue value of about US$2.4 billion. A bulk order however, would normally involve a discount.
