The Current Market
The current market demand for the Airbus A380-800 has remained stable over the last 12 months due to the outstanding performance of the aircraft. Today, CV knows of no aircraft listed as available for sale and/or lease. Out of more than 100 aircraft built, no aircraft are currently in storage, which is normal for such a young aircraft. It is CV’s opinion that these percentages are considered average for a twin-aisle aircraft type that has been in production for 5 years.
Current values in today’s market have remained stable for both new and used aircraft. As with the values for this aircraft, we expect lease rates to remain stable going forward as well. As there have not been any used aircraft to hit the market place, it is difficult to ascertain how the current market environment may affect values. We do not expect any used aircraft to become available for quite some time as many of these have been placed on long-term leases and all current operators seem to be quite satisfied with the performance of the aircraft. We see values and lease rates for this aircraft remaining stable over the next 12 months and beyond. In our opinion, the secondary market will most likely not develop until the latter half of this decade if not later. Should the market continue to improve during this time, we expect many of the initial operators to retain their still relatively young fleet of aircraft. As there will most likely not be a replacement for this aircraft for quite some time, we expect this trend to continue for the foreseeable future.
