Impact of Lessee Defaults on Aircraft Leasing

Alton Team: John Mowry

Market: Aircraft Leasing & Financing

Alton Aviation Consultancy Managing Director John Mowry presented an assessment of the impact airline lessee defaults have on the economics of an individual leased aircraft and on a portfolio of leased aircraft at the Investing in Aviation Finance conference hosted by Ishka in London, a conference forum focused on connecting institutional investors to the aviation finance market.


The presentation highlights some of the recent distress experienced by airlines and the exposure of various asset backed securitizations (ABS) of leased aircraft to the challenged lessees. Via several representative case studies, the potential impact of a default on an individual aircraft lease, and on the exposed portfolios, was assessed.
