Pacific AirFinance places 737-300s

Pacific AirFinance has placed two of its four Boeing 737-300s it acquired from United Airlines last year. The company leased 737-300 (24253, 24638) aircraft with CFM56-3B1/B2 engines to Batavia Air. The aircraft are 1988 and 1989 vintage, respectively.

Pacific AirFinance purchased four 737-300s last year for tear down but has decided to lease some aircraft. "We have found the market to be somewhat at an inflection point where if you have quality relationships, you can place aircraft, but otherwise the tear down market still offers interesting opportunities albeit at much softer demand levels than just three months ago. The materials markets are volatile and as such the values of classics are still dropping from prior distressed thresholds," comments Troy Tollen of Pacific AirFinance.

CAO understands that Pacific Airfinance is in the market to acquire more 737-300s.
