BOC Aviation to Buy Four New Boeing 787-9 Aircraft From Boeing

BOC Aviation Ltd. (2588.HK) said Friday that it signed a deal to buy four Boeing planes in an order valued at US$1.08 billion at list prices.

BOC Aviation, the Hong Kong-listed aircraft leasing arm of Bank of China Ltd., will buy four Boeing 787-9 jets from the U.S. aircraft manufacturer. BOC Aviation didn't disclose the exact cost, but customers typically get price concessions for aircraft purchases.

The Hong Kong-listed aircraft lessor said the four aircraft will be delivered in 2019, and that it plans to fund the purchase with internal resources including cash on hand and bank borrowings.
