BOC Aviation has signed agreements for the long-term lease of two new A320-200s to Air New Zealand. The aircraft, powered by IAE2527-A5 SelectOne engines, are scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2011. This deal marks the first time that BOC Aviation has worked with New Zealand’s national carrier. Air New Zealand’s chief financial officer Rob McDonald said the leased aircraft will fly the domestic routes together with the new A320-200 aircraft recently ordered from Airbus, adding that the carrier’s fleet strategy is based on a combination of owned and leased aircraft to give it the flexibility to adjust to market conditions.
