Could COVID-19 Reshape The Mid-Life Aircraft Market?

Air New Zealand’s chief executive has become the latest leader to predict that his airline will emerge from the corona-crisis as a smaller operation.

The result will be bad news for the MRO market, which profited from booming demand for mid-life equipment through the last decade, as airlines responded to buoyant passenger traffic and, in recent years, sought cover for the Boeing 737 Max grounding, Airbus A321neo delivery delays and those 787s hit by Trent 1000 issues.

Management of investment funds and asset-backed securitizations focusing on mid-life aircraft, many of which emerged only in the last two years, will also feel pretty queasy at the recent turn of events.
