Its cash revenue also grew with a 9% increase to $337m.

Andy Cronin, Avolon CEO, commented: “The first quarter of 2024 demonstrates the upward financial trajectory of our business, headlined by our increasing profitability.

“Our large orderbook provides us with a clear competitive advantage in an undersupplied market.  Coupled with our prudent balance sheet and liquidity position, we are in a strong position to drive further profitability and generate long-term shareholder value.”

Going forward its order book for the next 24 months is also 98% placed showing the strong demand for airliner leasing, particularly with airlines seeking to cut fuel costs and emissions with next generation airlines such as the A320neo family.
