The aviation industry is a long term growth market. Globally, commercial passenger numbers are expected to grow by approximately 5% every year, over the next 20 years.

This unprecedented demand is driving airlines to increase the number of aircraft they fly, with manufacturers expecting the worldwide fleet to double over this same 20 year period. Taking into account replacing redundant aircraft, that would require over 40,000 new commercial aircraft to meet this demand.

This huge demand, coupled with the airlines looking to finance new aircraft through operating leasing, provides an opportunity for investors to look to provide capital to lease aircraft to commercial airlines. In return, investors can benefit from the surety of the ownership of a real asset, long term contractual income and the opportunity to efficiently manage aircraft with a view to achieving strong capital returns.

Whether looking for secure income, capital growth or wealth preservation, investing in commercial aircraft operating leases provides uncorrelated returns, complementing other allocations to alternative assets.

Drawing on KGAL’s 40 years of experience in the aviation sector, transacting on over 700 commercial aircraft, we will explore the market opportunity, the increasing use of operating leases by airlines, and how investors can look to this opportunity to help achieve their investment objectives by utilising different strategies
