Dómhnal Slattery, CEO Avolon, commented: “Avolon enters 2019 following another strong quarter and full year. We now have a portfolio-offering that is focused exclusively on young, modern, new technology and fuel efficient single and twin aisle aircraft types. Our record-setting full year was underpinned by our robust lease and trading activity, where we delivered and transitioned 61 aircraft and sold 87 aircraft. Additionally, our recently announced Airbus order provides us with locked-in growth for the medium-term, helping us support the fleet requirements of our airline customers around the world.

Our business continues to deliver strong results and our financial strength, coupled with our increasingly unencumbered asset base and diversified shareholder base, positions us well to achieve an investment grade rating. We remain excited about the prospects for the business and have confidence that we will continue to deliver value for our shareholders into the future."
