BOC Aviation (Hall 5, Stand D262) has grown from just another player in the aircraft leasing business to a prominent brand, and the world’s fifth largest aircraft lessor. Started in 1993 as Singapore Aircraft Leasing (Sale), it was acquired by Bank of China in December 2006 for $3.25 billion. In July 2007, its name was changed to BOC Aviation.

Singapore Airshow 2012

Southeast Asia, rather than the behemoth economies of China and India, provided the bulk of the sales impetus for the 2012 Singapore Airshow. More specifically, it was from Singapore’s neighbor Indonesia that the latest wave of airline fleet modernization came when Lion Air confirmed a massive order for 201 of Boeing’s new 737Max-9 narrowbodies, plus 29 of the existing 737-900ERs.

A flurry of commercial activity in steamy Singapore yesterday marked a busy opening day for the 2012 airshow. Kicked off by the conversion to firm status of a record commitment for 201 Boeing 737 MAXs and 29 737-900ERs placed last November by Indonesia’s LionAir, the day would prove very lucrative for both Western OEMs and a relative newcomer from China.

The world’s aircraft leasing industry appears to have weathered the proverbial storm of the global recession and now looks well positioned to exploit aircraft placement opportunities in markets such as China, in particular. However, such opportunities won’t come without their challenges, according to some of the leasing company bosses who appeared at this spring’s International Society of Transport Aircraft Traders (ISTAT) conference.
