The rebound in demand has been met with operational challenges within airlines and at airports but we are seeing broad-based demand for new and used aircraft as passengers want to return to the skies.
This market backdrop, together with our strong liquidity, attractive orderbook of new technology aircraft, global scale and multi-cycle experience underpins our confidence in the medium-term outlook for our business and the wider industry.”
