Welcome!

Welcome to “Aviation Finance notes”, Herbert Smith Freehills’ aviation finance know-how and market intelligence blog. We are delighted to be launching this blog where you will find regular updates on the latest developments in international aviation finance.

Here, we will be posting a series of short articles, videos and podcasts engaging with current issues, trends and challenges faced by the aviation industry.

We hope you find this blog informative, particularly as the aviation industry forges its path through the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the particular challenges posed by the pandemic are unique, it is clear the industry can draw on a legacy of resilience, experience and discipline developed during the other crises it has faced – and overcome – in recent decades.

The process of economic recovery in the aviation industry will be complex, with different regions reopening and progressing at different rates. The international reach of the Herbert Smith Freehills’ aviation finance practice, as part of a broader group of aviation sector specialists, places the firm in a strong position to observe, analyse and help shape the response of industry participants on a global scale.

There will no doubt be plenty to discuss over the coming months, and we look forward to engaging with you on the Aviation Finance notes blog.
