Disruption creates opportunity for some and threats to others, a landscape currently familiar to many of the world’s lessors as they continue to combat lease defaults and deferrals, reduced collections and cashflow pressures on one hand and an increasingly competitive sale-and-leaseback market on the other.
The pandemic has hit hard and across all regions. The cumulative impact of payment holidays for distressed airlines and on-going rental negotiations including new PBH deals means that in the near term, 150 lessors face more turbulence and the prospect of further consolidation to strengthen balance sheets, widen airline relationships and gain economies of scale.
