Aviation Finance Market Forecast


Your essential guide to the aviation finance market in 2022

The change and innovation that market dislocations can induce is underway in commercial aviation. From the advancement of ESG accountability to the intensifying developments of the Sustainable Aviation Fuel industry and the cutting-edge advancements in airborne EVs, E-VTOL and electric/hydrogen propulsion; these long-term initiatives will help grow our industry in the right direction.

Traffic will continue to build on its recovery in 2022, as airlines with domestic networks continue to have the best opportunity to break into sustained and healthy quarterly operating profits. Aviation finance remains strong, although financiers have become increasingly selective in whom and in what they are prepared to finance.

It’s still a tough market but with buckets of optimism for recovery. Let’s not forget that aviation remains part of a $12 trillion global travel and tourism business and pent-up demand shows that, given the chance, aircraft seats will fill as soon as allowed.

Ishka Vista 2022 Aviation Finance Market Forecast delivers a trusted and independent assessment of the aviation landscape to help identify markets, products and assets offering the greatest return on investment and the best potential for growth in 2022
