Boeing (NYSE: BA) said it has announced an order by BOC Aviation for 50 737 MAX 8s, 30 Next-Generation 737-800s and two 777-300ERs (Extended Range).

The order, valued at USD8.8bn at list prices, is the largest in BOC Aviation´s 20-year history and part of the Singapore-based leasing company´s effort to grow its portfolio of fuel-efficient airplanes.

The order adds to BOC Aviation´s fleet, which is among the youngest in the leasing industry with an average of less than four years.

The Next-Generation 737-800 is the best-selling version of the highly successful Next-Generation 737 family, because of its ability to deliver outstanding, dependable operational and financial performance across the widest wide range of missions. The 737 MAX incorporates the latest-technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market.

The 777-300ER extends the 777 family´s span of capabilities, bringing twin-engine efficiency and reliability to the long-range market. The airplane can fly up to 7,825 nautical miles (14,490 kilometers) and is equipped with GE90-115BL engines.
