Monthly Special Aircraft Report - A319-100 March 2013
Mar 06, 2013
The Current Market
In the last 12 months, CV has seen values drop for the A319-100 type by about 5-15%, with lease rentals dropping by about 10% depending on the vintage. With the order book for this aircraft diminishing and the lack of real demand from the market, it is tough to see any real recovery for this aircraft in the near future. As operators move towards bigger aircraft going forward, we expect the value and lease rate trends to continue downward for the foreseeable future. As values continue to decline, we also expect that some of these aircraft will be parted out as part-out firms look to take advantage of the commonality with the rest of the A320 family of aircraft and strong demand for spares.
With the C Series also fast approaching entry into service, we suspect that operators looking for that size aircraft will shift their focus on the more efficient C Series. In the long term, CV expects that the A319 will most likely suffer the same fate as the Boeing 737-500 which has become attractive in only select markets for the right price.
