The impact of changes to the export credit rules and the growing role of lessors are the prime talking points in this year's Airline Business interactive special report on the aviation finance market.
This year's special report examines how the leasing sector is increasing its proportion of the world fleet, and how airlines' financing sources are being adapted in the wake of the higher cost of export credit resulting from the revised Aircraft Sector Understanding agreement.
The growing debate about changing airliner economic lives and the effect on the depreciation curve is also discussed.
Leading experts from the manufacturing, banking and advisory sectors provide insight and analysis in short video interviews. These include Nigel Taylor of EADS and Boeing's Kostya Zolotusky; Bertrand Grabowski and Bert van Leeuwen of DVB Bank and Rob Morris and Paul Sheridan from Flightglobal's consultancy arm Ascend.
The online special also incorporates a range of data presented in interactive format, giving snapshots of the largest lessors, funding sources and financing forecasts by region.
