Commercial Aircraft Leasing
The global Commercial Leased Aircraft Asset Portfolio Value is projected to reach US$502 billion by 2024, driven by the healthy outlook for the commercial aerospace industry amidst increasing air passenger traffic, recovery in travel and tourism, rise of low cost carriers (LCCs) in Asia, and increasing airline investments in fleet expansion.

Few of the benefits driving the preference for leasing over purchase include:
  • reduced CAPEX and financial liquidity;
  • capacity flexibility;
  • ability to respond to market conditions in a timely manner through rapid fleet expansion;
  • fleet consistency;
  • and reduced maintenance costs.
