BOC Aviation has this week announced the delivery of the final Airbus A320neo to Turkish Airlines on its books.
The Istanbul-based carrier has been slowly growing its fleet through additional deliveries as well as incremental orders or sale & leaseback options.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
BOC Aviation Delivers Final Airbus A320neo to Turkish Airlines…
BOC Aviation have now delivered a total of five Airbus A320neos to Turkish Airlines, which concludes their side of the delivery of the type to the carrier.
Commenting on the finalisation of this deal was Robert Martin, the Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer of the lessor:
“We are pleased to announce this transaction, which deepens our longstanding relationship with Turkish Airlines”.
“The five A320NEO aircraft that we have delivered to the company reflect our commitment to providing our customers with the world’s most technologically advanced and fuel-efficient aircraft.”
Turkish Airlines has been utilising lessors a lot over the course of this year to cater to the route growth that it wanted to perform over the course of this year and the next.
Back in June, the carrier signed a leasing deal with CDB Aviation for six Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, with deliveries due to take place in 2024-25.
Then, just last month, the airline signed a deal with AerCap for three Boeing 787-9 aircraft as well as 25 brand new 737 MAX 8 aircraft, as well as an extension of leases on six of its Airbus A330-200 aircraft.
Overall, Turkish Airlines has had to adapt to the current challenges with the supply chain, with it looking like they will be wanting to acquire 600 aircraft via a far slower way than just full-blown order acquisition.
