Event Overview

Japan aviation

2018 is a promising year for the aviation industry in Japan – traffic is expecting to soar to a record high, and a series of policy initiatives including airport privatisation are set to expand the infrastructure capacity for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics in 2020. In the finance and investment market, the robust commercial liquidity in syndication and the increasing participation of regional banks have helped to stimulate the debt and equity side of JOL and JOLCO transactions. More Japanese lessors and investors are tapping into operating leasing through JVs to diversify their business portfolio. Yet challenges remain: negative interest rates continue to squeeze debt margins. Innovative structures need to be created to make JOLCOs more accessible to airlines. High asset prices and low lease rates persist. 

Key speakers of the conference: 

  • Hiroyuki Hatada, Director of Aerospace and Defense Industry Division, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) 
  • Steven F. Udvar-Házy, Executive Chairman of the Board, Air Lease Corporation 
  • Rikan Miura, Head of Global Aviation Team, Development Bank of Japan  
  • Murat Seker, Chief Financial Officer, Turkish Airlines
