Finnair has excercised an option, under the Letter of Intent signed with BOC Aviation Pte Ltd (“BOC Aviation”) on 30 December 2015, to lease a further two new Airbus A321-200 narrow-body aircraft.
The aircraft are scheduled for delivery to Finnair during the winter season 2017/2018. The lease agreements have a minimum term of eight years.
On 30 December 2015, Finnair issued a stock exchange release on the long-term lease of four A321 aircraft from BOC Aviation beginning in the first half of 2017 with a view to the growth of its long-haul traffic.
Finnair is a network airline specialising in passenger and cargo traffic between Asia and Europe. Helsinki´s geographical location gives Finnair a competitive advantage, since the fastest connections between many European destinations and Asian megacities fly over Finland.
