Project Summary

Your AIRCRAFT LEASE CONTRACT is coming to an end?

Very soon, you will have to take an important decision impacting the future of your airline.

All options available in such circumstances will have to be thoroughly reviewed and financially evaluated before the decision-making process can be finalized.

COAST Conseil, Airsource Partners’ Contract Management expert can help you make the right decision.

Project Description



This highly strategic project aims at helping you make the right decisions at the end of your aircraft lease contract.

As the lease agreement of any aircraft is approaching, airlines typically review the various options available to them: aircraft lease renewal or negotiation, return conditions negotiation or maintenance program evaluation represent the most commonly used alternatives. More options might be available on a case-by-case basis.

Each one of these alternative solutions comes with benefits and drawbacks of its own. A careful evaluation of each one of them on a COMMERCIAL, RISK and FINANCIAL standpoints is therefore imperative before the decision-making process can be finalized.

To do so, very specific negotiating skills combined with a deep working knowledge of the aviation and finance industries are required, making the involvement of external advisors a very judicious and potentially profitable investment.

COAST Conseil has been selected by Airsource Partners on the basis of their unique and successfully proven approach to this type of situation.

Following a careful review of your lease agreement, COAST Conseil will help you evaluate and quantify all scenarios offered to your Airline and will assist you in your decision at the end. COAST Conseil also proposes to coordinate negotiations with the lessors and maintenance providers involved.
