BOC Aviation has delivered the seventh of seven new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft for lease to TUI Travel Aviation Finance (TUI). All aircraft are powered by CFM LEAP-1B engines.
Tom Chandler, Managing Director, Fleet and Asset Management, TUI Group, said: “We are very pleased to have expanded our relationship with BOC Aviation through these financing transactions, agreed in two tranches August 2020 and October 2020, with the completion of the deliveries in time for the peak summer season. We look forward to other opportunities to work with BOC Aviation in the future. These additional Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are a valuable addition to our fleet, characterized by considerably lower fuel consumption and noise emissions than the aircraft that they replace. This contributes to our aim to reduce the environmental impact of holidays and to maintain our top ranking among the world’s most carbon-efficient airlines.”
TUI is a world-leading tourism group. The broad portfolio gathered under the Group umbrella consists of strong tour operators, 1,600 travel agencies and leading online portals, five airlines with around 150 aircraft, over 400 hotels, 15 cruise liners and many incoming agencies in all major holiday destinations around the globe.
