Avolon’s primary asset focus is on young, fuel-efficient, single-aisle aircraft such as the high-demand Airbus A320 family and Boeing 737NG family. Avolon also invests selectively in best-in-class twin-aisle aircraft such as the Airbus A330 family and Boeing 777 and 787 families. Avolon’s portfolio comprises a balance of new aircraft ordered directly from Boeing and Airbus, together with young aircraft acquired through sale and leaseback transactions. The result is a risk-balanced portfolio of quality assets and a fully-rounded product offering for customers.
Since launch in May, 2010, Avolon has raised US$5.8 billion of capital including an equity commitment of US$1.4 billion from four of the world’s leading investors; Cinven, CVC Capital Partners, Oak Hill Capital Partners and the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation in three separate fund raisings.
To date, Avolon has also raised US$4.4 billion in debt from a geographically diverse group of the world’s leading commercial banks and specialist aviation banks.
The Avolon team is composed of highly experienced aircraft leasing and aviation finance professionals with prolific industry track records. The team has an extensive network of senior industry relationships with airlines, manufacturers, investors and aviation banks worldwide.
