IBA says aircraft leasing shows few signs of slowing

Aircraft leasing is showing little signs of slowing in the short term, according to analysts at the International Bureau of Aviation (IBA), which has just published a review of 2015. Phil Seymour, chief executive of the bureau, which recently opened a Dublin office, states in the review’s introduction that “operating leasing as a financial solution shows little sign of slowing in the short term”. However, Mr Seymour suggests that with question marks over the ability of twin-aisle craft - normally used for long haul services - to keep their value, lessors themselves are likely to focus on the less risky, single-aisle craft.
