What Our Clients Say

“This is the first operating lease financing for the airline. It represents part of our long-term fleet financing strategy towards a mixture of leases and bank loans to enable us to continue our future growth plans. To that end we were delighted to work with the team at ALTAÏR to complete this transaction efficiently and within tight time scales.”
