Boeing joined in the sales action yesterday at the Paris Air Show when MC Aviation Partners (MCAP), a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corp., finalized an order for two Next-Generation 737-800s valued at $153 million at list prices. The order marks MCAP’s first direct purchase of airplanes from Boeing.

“We consider this a very memorable event for MCAP and Boeing,” said MCAP CEO Tatsuo Sato. “These aircraft will be leased to Skymark Airlines in Japan.” Skymark flies eight Boeing 737-800s and a 767-300 from Tokyo Haneda Airport on a primarily domestic and regional network.

Tokyo-based MCAP, which holds the largest aircraft lease assets in Japan, owns 60 airplanes worth more than $2 billion. MCAP also manages 60 other airplanes.
