The two aircraft have been placed on long-term lease with EVA Airways Corporation. With 256 aircraft operated by 61 airlines in 30 countries worldwide, BOC Aviation is primarily involved in leasing aircraft. Bank of China-owned BOC Aviation aims to acquire 195 aircraft this year. The firm has operations in Dublin, London, Seattle and Tianjin. The Airbus airplanes will be delivered to BOC Aviation by 2017.
