Widebody Rentals Remain Low
The low interest rates are inevitably having an effect on lease rentals when compared with previous levels but the market for used widebodies is perhaps not as strong as for narrowbodies and this is making it necessary for rentals to be realistic. The larger widebodies can be placed – notwithstanding…

A330-200 New Values Deteriorate Over Last Five Years
The value of a new A330-200 has continued to deteriorate in line with expectations given the arrival of a replacement type in the form of A330-800 which hitherto has failed to inspire any enthusiasm. The value of a new aircraft does not seek to represent the cost of buying the…
