The aircraft finance sector has gathered pace again in 2021, with capital markets providing strong levels of liquidity to finance new commercial aircraft, with cash and sale and leasebacks just as popular. There is a long-term commitment from investors and financiers to aircraft financing, Boeing Capital Corporation reports in its 2021 review and 2022 outlook. Boeing sees a strong commitment to aircraft financing.

In itsĀ Commercial Aircraft Finance Market Outlook (CAFMO) released on May 2, the 100-percent subsidiary of Boeing reports that aircraft delivery funding stood at $64 billion last year. This compares to $59 billion in the first year of Covid and $98 billion in 2019. Although an higher, financing is still a long way off the $126 billion seen in 2018 and $122 billion in 2017.
