  • Thursday, February 01, 10:10 AM - 11:00 AM
What key trends do lessors view as shaping their industry? What lease types are airlines looking for? What is the impact of NG fleets on lessor portfolio management The leasing industry has seen significant growth in the past years, with a large number of new entrants, particularly in Asia, is this sustainable? Does increased competition and a larger proportion of leased fleet in the air require lessors to be more aware of MRO contracting by airlines, to ensure assets do not sit idle or spend additional time in shops following lease-return? Do lessors have access to all the information they need?
