Main Event

Join this roundtable of top finance executives discuss their view on the role of bank lending in decarbonising aviation finance. 

  • How are decarbonisation pressures for lenders beginning to restrict funding options? Are there ways to mitigate this for lessors?  
  • How are banks viewing aviation internally versus other asset classes?  
  • Will smaller lessors still be readily able to access the bank market?  
  •  Where are lessors and airlines sourcing debt? What is happening in the ABS market? 
  • When is there likely to be a return in ‘traditional’ warehouse lending? 
  • How much are banks and alternative lenders really in competition?  
  • Can aviation provide competitive returns to attract investors to the asset class?
