10:50 | Mapping Risk

In a competitive, more volatile, market, IBA explores means of mapping understanding operator risk and suggests it’s vital to look beyond the financials and assess other critical criteria such as ownership, the asset, the jurisdiction, the legal environment and the lessee’s track record. Armed with this intelligence, lessors can reduce risk and drive negotiations around rentals, deposits and reserves.

Paul Lyons, Head of Advisory, IBA

17:10 | THE CLOSING DEBATE: Do we need or want a new aircraft and engine sales model?

At the moment OEMs have to seek a dominant share in aftermarket provision, as they have to sell engines at a loss: So therefore, how would the panelists like to see things play out in the long term? Higher purchase prices for engines, for example, with commensurately less interest in aftermarket, would mean that it were no longer essential to have aftermarket revenues in order to regain profitability – Is that a good thing for airlines and lessors?
