Don’t let your projects be delayed get the full picture of an asset quickly

It is for good reasons that analysts see the Boeing 737-800 as one of the two most liquid single-aisle aircraft in the market today. Value trends split between build years of 1997, 2007 and 2017 present a story of an aircraft of three generations that risk committees consider a robust investment. A key stakeholder in this program’s success has been the lessor market. Cirium (formerly Ascend) show the current market lease rate remains stable at $155,000 a month for the oldest vintages and higher for newer versions. There is a need for financial analysts across banks, lessors, Non-Banking Financial Institutions (NBFIs) and Insurance firms to qualitatively and quantitatively measure the risk of investing in a specific type of aircraft. Therefore, understanding value trends, lease rates and liquidity metrics is helping financial institutions make smarter decisions.

Avoid unnecessary turbulence by understanding the short, medium and long term outlook

In the short term, the 737-800 has few concerns despite its 20 plus year history. Lease rates have been stable since early 2018 and the aircraft continues to have a major presence with network airlines and LCCs. The medium and long-term outlook is also positive with the type expected to remain one of the most liquid single-aisle aircraft well into the future. Analysis to this level helps analysts and strategists understand market dynamics.

Race past the competition by basing your analysis on credible fleets information

There are 4,975 (figures accurate 24/01/2019) 737-800 aircraft in passenger service, 79 on order and 76 in storage globally. 42% of the aircraft are operating in Asia-Pacific, 28% in Europe and 18% in North America. These market figures are useful for financial and market analysts to present an accurate view of a specific asset type such as the 737-800.
