Every year Airline Economics recognises the best and brightest young talent in the aviation finance and leasing community with its list of the foremost 40 individuals aged under 40 years of age.

Nominations for the Airline Economics 40 under 40 Class of 2023 are now open.


Nomination guidelines:

All nominations must be submitted using this digital form and must be accompanied by a high resolution photo  (300dpi), up-to-date biography/resume, and at least one endorsement from an aviation industry executive.

PR companies are welcome to submit nominations but they must also provide endorsements from industry executives. Self-nominations – i.e. individuals who put their own name forward for consideration – are not accepted.

Nominees who have appeared in previous lists are allowed to appear again but their inclusion will be based on the strength of their achievements over the past year.

All nominees must be under 40 years of age 1 July 2023.

For the past six years, Airline Economics has awarded the Future Leader award to the person with the most nominations and the most impressive comments from clients.

Only candidates that have been shortlisted will be contacted. The decision of the Airline Economics’ team is final.


Any information provided should be suitable for publication unless specifically and clearly indicated.
