Aircraft Lease Agreement

Aircraft lease agreements have become an increasingly popular alternative to aircraft ownership. Aircraft leases allow airlines to expand its operating fleet of aircrafts without the requirement for large sums of capital expenditures through ownerships of its aircraft. This allows airlines to protect their risk positions in asset ownership and liquidity, whilst giving the aircraft owner stability and certainty with regards to a fixed rental income.

An aircraft lease agreement is an operating contract between a lessor and lessee. Typically, the lessee will be a commercial airline who pays a monthly rental fee to the lessor for the grant of usage of their aircraft.

A typical aircraft lease agreement can span any term between three to twelve years. This duration of the lease is usually shorter than the aircraft life and helps amortize the cost of purchasing the aircraft.

Some of the primary considerations when drafting a typical aircraft lease agreement are:

  • Term of Lease
  • Representations and Warranties
  • Indemnity
  • Payment Terms
  • Return of Aircraft
  • Insurance
  • Assignment
  • Loss or Damage to Aircraft
  • Repossession following an event of default
  • Governing Law

Both parties usually bear risks when it comes to aircraft lease agreements and therefore it is important to have an experienced law firm representing you in your Aircraft Lease agreements to ensure that you are fully advised and represented.
