March 30th edition: Ongoing recovery continues to drive new plane order books
March 30th 2023: The ongoing recovery in commercial aviation is well demonstrated by many of the stories covered in this issue. Air Lease Corporation’s well-oversubscribed inaugural sukuk issuance opens up new funding opportunities for IG-grade lessors and Castlelake’s early repayment of yet another ABS, this time nearly two years ahead of schedule, show the strength in many quarters in aviation finance. There are indications of yet more big new plane orders to come from Ryanair, Indian carrier Akasa and Riyadh Air, all of which seem to support Boeing’s view that at least a third more finance is going to be needed this year than it was last year to fund a predicted $94 billion worth of new aircraft deliveries by the industry in 2023.
