SHANGHAI, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- BoCom Leasing on Wednesday signed a deal with Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC) to buy 30 of the nation's homegrown C919 large passenger planes.

The financial leasing arm of China's Bank of Communications (BoCom), the nation's fifth largest lender, signed the new order as it sought to expand its fleet size to cash in on the country's rapidly growing demand for air services.

The deal is also a boost for COMAC as the newcomer looks to compete with dominant passenger plane makers Airbus and Boeing to win a slice of the international aviation market share.

Neither side revealed the value of the order.

The new deal brings the total order of C919 passenger jets to 195.
