At the heart of an Airline Credit Profile is the Ishka Credit Score and The Ishka View – our team’s expert opinion on an airline’s key strengths versus its challenges.

The exclusive credit score on an individual airline is generated with six critical measures at its core: liquidity, leverage, gearing, average fleet age, load factors and EBITDAR margin.

The final credit score is underpinned by expert analysis and commentary from our team of global analysts, taking into consideration a holistic view of an airline’s financials, management and shareholders, route network, fleet order book and the impact of recent events.

Actionable, calculated Ishka analysis utilising multiple, trusted data sources including Bloomberg, OAG and airline financial statements.

“We find the Ishka Credit Profile reports to be of real value to us at Aergo in support of our own internal credit review and reporting process. Ishka has been able to produce these reports in a very timely fashion and we find that the reports are both relevant and easy to follow. We particularly like that Ishka concludes with its own view on the credit, despite not having the benefit of full transparency on the airline’s financials.”
