(Apr 22): BOC Aviation Ltd., a Singapore-based aircraft leasing company, is testing bond markets at a time when global passenger airlines are nearly shut due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this week, Virgin Australia Holdings Ltd. became the first carrier in Asia to collapse due to the pandemic.
