Our recent aircraft engine values update webinar has identified several key trends in narrowbody aircraft values.


Mature widebody aircraft engine values struggling to recover, but freighter engines are performing well

Aviation intelligence from IBA's InsightIQ platform has identified that widebody aircraft utilisation is steadily improving, but the slowed recovery has continued to depress values of engines powering mature fleets.



Our experts' analysis found the exceptions in the mature widebody market are the CF6-80C2 and PW4062 engines, which typically power Boeing 747 and 767 aircraft. These engine values have been driven upwards by 27% and 17% respectively as freighter operators battle over limited supply.



New generation widebody engines show strong value performance

New generation widebody aircraft engines are faring much better, with recovering or stable values. The Trent XWB (A350) has risen by 1.4% over the past year to US$22.925 million, whilst the Trent 7000 engine (predominantly fitted to the Airbus A330neo) has seen a 0.9% rise to US$19.1 million.



IBA's insight also reveals that ESG continues to dominate decision-making. InsightIQ's Carbon Emissions Calculator recently revealed that the GEnx-1B74/75/P2 is the most efficient engine based on CO2 emissions per-seat per-mile when fitted to the Boeing 787-9 and 787-10.
