2012 witnessed a host of market developments. Airlines defied gravity once again by registering global passenger traffic growth in excess of 5%, but yields did not follow suit. A record number of over 500 jet aircraft were permanently retired, with nearly 50 of these being less than 15 years old, fuelling further the debate surrounding the economic useful life of commercial jet aircraft. Demand for new aircraft remains strong. Deliveries in 2013 will generate a 10% increase in demand for funding and take the value of deliveries to over $100 billion.
Where will the funding come from? Has the economic life of an aircraft reduced? Will the markets break the ‘snakes and ladders’ cycle of ‘one step forwards, one step back’ and instead deliver a consistent trend of progress and profit in 2013?
