BOC Aviation Limited has announced orders for 10 firm and 15 option shipsets of Pratt & Whitney GTF™ (“GTF”) engines to power new Airbus A320neo family aircraft already in the Company’s order book and scheduled for delivery in 2023 and 2024.

The GTF engine is offered through Pratt & Whitney, a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft and helicopter engines, and auxiliary power units.

“This repeat order reflects the highly efficient performance of the GTF engine that will continue to power a significant portion of our A320 family fleet and orderbook,” said Robert Martin, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer of BOC Aviation. “We have acquired 47 shipsets of GTF engines to date. Our relationship with Pratt & Whitney and its related entities dates back to 1997. Since then, engines produced by Pratt & Whitney have powered 230 aircraft in our portfolio, representing more than 25% of the total aircraft that we have purchased or committed to purchase.”

Rick Deurloo, Chief Commercial Officer, Commercial Engines, Pratt & Whitney, said, “We thank BOC Aviation for its continued confidence in the GTF engine. We have a strong, almost 25 year relationship with BOC Aviation and we look forward to supporting its latest order of game-changing GTF engines.”
