Ireland is the global leader in aircraft leasing industry. We like to think of the country as a commercial aircraft carrier in the Atlantic, a position supported by the facts:

Ireland is the biggest aircraft leasing market in the world

And that gives AerSource unrivaled industry knowledge and access

  • Every two seconds of every day, a plane leased from an Irish company takes off somewhere in the world
  • Every year, approximately 2,500 new passenger and cargo aeroplanes and executive jets are ordered and half of these will be financed
  • In the next 20 years $5.2 trillion worth of new aircraft will be needed, $2.5 trillion of which will be leased and more than half of this will be financed by Irish aircraft leasing companies
  • Ireland is Boeing’s biggest customer
  • Over $120 billion worth of aviation assets are managed from Ireland (half of the world’s leased aircraft)
  • The international registrar for aircraft is located in Ireland
  • Unrivalled aircraft leasing tax, legal and accounting resources are available in Ireland
