Covid-19: Is the 3-month airline payment deferral the end of the story?

The Covid-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on the global aviation industry, with some of the most severe ramifications impacting airlines and lessors. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) expects airline revenues to decline industry-wide by 50% in 2020, falling from USD 838 billion to USD 419 billion. With such significant financial strain, how can airlines and lessors work in partnership to pivot their approach and achieve a pragmatic solution?

Combining nearly a century of aviation expertise, Phil Seymour, IBA’s Company President, and Andy Mansell, Partner at Split Rock Aviation, bring you an insightful and thought-provoking webcast that discusses:

  • How can airlines and lessors achieve a “win-win” situation – unprecedented times call for unprecedented solutions
  • Restructuring – The need for a dynamic outlook
  • Working in partnership – what happens beyond the 3-month payment deferral?
