09:00 – 10:30 | Values & Lease Rate

The impact of covid-19 on aircraft & engine values and lease rates in the moment and what we can expect going forward. Should all lessors and airlines be writing-down values already as AerCap and Qantas have, or should they wait and see what 2021 brings? Residual values, what is realistic and what is a good LTV rate?

Do we need a new model for valuations based on lease life and airline credit?

14:10 – 15:10 | Aircraft Trading & investment panel

Lease rates and values of the 777-300ER & A330 were already under significant pressure prior to the pandemic – Where are they now? What does the future hold for the A330 both in and out of production types? What about the 777X and the A380? What narrow-body types are buoyant, and which are in difficulty and will environmental concerns cut short the life of many types? Are turboprops & RJs trading? What about in-production types – How has the 787 and A350 held-up & will the MAX have a positive or negative effect in the short term?
