Air Partner’s Remarketing division is seeing high levels of activity in the aircraft sales and leasing market, with some types of aircraft proving particularly popular.
Tony Whitty, Head of Aircraft Remarketing & ACMI at Air Partner, comments on what he is currently seeing in the market, with further detail on specific narrow-body models below.
“We regularly get asked about the market for used aircraft, but the reality is that it varies with every aircraft type.”
“Currently, there are probably more enquiries from airlines for B737-400s than for A319s, which some people might find surprising since they haven’t been in production since 1999. However, demand for these aircraft is still strong, with a number of the fleet being used for cargo.”
“For some airlines with extremely low utilisation, capital cost is the key issue and therefore the 737-400 is best suited to their needs.”
“The operating costs of A319s and A320s are quite similar so airlines are choosing the A320 due to its higher capacity.”
