In the first half of 2019 Air Macau is scheduled to take delivery of three new A320neo Airbus aircraft that were ordered from BOC Aviation, the Bank of China group company said in a statement.
The statement cites Robert Martin, the CEO and chief executive officer of BOC Aviation, expressing his satisfaction at having Air Macau as one of his customers, whilst also supporting the growth plans of the airline’s network.
Martin added that BOC Aviation is well placed to support the expansion of China’s air transport market, “with Air Macau choosing Airbus A320neo in line with our decision to invest in technologically advanced aircraft.”
Portuguese-language newspaper Tribuna de Macau in Thursday’s edition reported that the new aircraft will allow the airline to expand its network of air links, with flights to Mumbai and Perth, for example.
The fleet of Air Macau, an airline founded in 1994, consists of 18 Airbus, including 10 A321s, four A320s and four A319s, connecting the territory to more than 25 destinations in mainland China and Asia.
BOC Aviation is the bank leasing company of the Bank of China Group, with a fleet of 499 owned, managed and ordered aircraft serving 89 airlines in 34 countries and regions as of 30 September, 2018.
