BUILDING A GLOBAL LEADER IN AIRCRAFT LEASING
Avolon has built a leading position in the global aircraft leasing industry. The scale of our business reflects the ambition of our team, multi-cycle experience and our focus on maintaining a fleet of young, fuel-efficient aircraft. Our success is also built on clear corporate values which inform our interaction with all of our stakeholders. Our values ensure we continue to build strong relationships with all our stakeholders; maintain an attractive and inclusive environment in which to work; and invest back in our local community.
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE STAND FOR
Our corporate values - embodied in the acronym TRIBE - form the basis of how we run our business, how we interact with one another and with all of our stakeholders. Our TRIBE is who we are and what unites us as a company.
Ireland may be a small island nation but we still play a leading role in world commerce. We can all be proud of our impact and our influence which is felt wherever global capital flows. Ireland’s economic advantages are many, but what can differentiate us is our ability to adapt, to be nimble, when both threat and opportunity arise. We in Avolon believe both challenges are with us now. This is why we have developed Project i, a white paper that has Ireland’s best economic interests at its core.
We’re proud of the recognition we have achieved within our industry. It underscores our amibition to build the global leader in our sector and continue to push boundaries in all that we do.
