We had a great turnout for our Engine Selection Webinar this morning. There has been a definite uptick in queries regarding Engines and Freighters in the last couple of months, with yield the primary rationale as Narrowbody investment becomes ever more competitive. If you missed the Engine session and are interested in our insight, please register your interest here and we’ll send you the slide deck shortly.
The next in IBA’s webinar series is a session on Lease Management on December 5th, 08:30 – 09:30am GMT. Lessors, Financiers and Investors are welcome to join us to understand where value can be gained through the better mapping of risk and more proactive servicing. You can register your interest here.
A couple of news stories caught our eye this week.
There is positive news for the creditors of Monarch this week, as a court ruling that stripped them of their landing slots was overturned.
Finally, there was a couple of A380 stories as lessors look for secondary options. We agree that a used A380 is a potentially attractive purchase for BA at well under the new price and are intrigued by Amedeo’s plan to offer seats to new entrants and vertical integrators.
