Commercial Aircraft Leasing: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Aircraft leasing, as an alternative to outright purchase, is growing in prominence. By eliminating the need to earmark huge capital outlays required for aircraft purchase, leasing allows airline operators to shore up cash flows and maintain liquidity to meet operating expenses. Leasing eliminates the long waiting period associated with new aircraft purchase. Immediate delivery of aircraft with flexible payment options and the accompanying tax benefits make this financing model extremely attractive to airline companies. Aircraft leasing is therefore a cost effective fleet management strategy for low-cost carriers with limited capital outlays.

Key factors driving growth in the market include increase in the number of low-cost carriers in developing countries, and the need to expand fleet sizes to accommodate the expected growth in air passenger and cargo traffic. Aircraft leasing, against this backdrop, is evolving into a mainstream aircraft procurement strategy. Soaring aircraft costs, increasing fuel prices and shrinking profit margins, are also benefiting the concept of aircraft leasing. The steady increase in the cost of air fuel is forcing airline companies to disengage their aging fuel guzzling aircraft models and add new fuel efficient variants to their fleet, thus fuelling demand for aircraft leasing.

Aircraft leasing in Europe and North America is witnessing growth, encouraged by the improving economic climate in these regions. The global airfreight market is projected to witness impressive growth over the next 20 years, driven by the positive long-term economic outlook, liberalization of regional economies, and expanding international trade. Air cargo traffic on the Asia-North America and Europe corridor is forecast to grow at the fastest rate, with China generating the maximum average annual growth. The Asia-North America corridor is also forecast to emerge into one of the leading airfreight markets worldwide. This projected rise in airfreight volume and freighter movements across different countries will boost demand for a range of freighter aircraft in the coming years. Against this backdrop, lease rates for freighter aircraft are expected to witness strong growth.

As stated by the new market research report on Commercial Aircraft Leasing, Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 7.7% over the analysis period. Leasing of long haul & medium distance aircraft dominates the global market.
