Avocet

Services for Aircraft Owners

The introduction of aviation into the UN’s ICAO CORSIA global emissions compliance scheme may significantly increase aircraft owners’ credit risk exposures to airlines and operators globally. Any operator offering international flights that fails to comply with CORSIA and/or EU ETS regulations may face substantial financial penalties in a patchwork of different jurisdictions, as well as a potential withdrawal of their aircraft operator’s certificate or the enforcement of qualifying liens against aircraft.

CORSIA and EU ETS present aircraft financiers and lessors with additional operational risk and due diligence obligations that needs to be continually monitored and controlled.  This may require having to deal with a number of different entities including Government Departments, accredited verifiers, ICAO and Eurocontrol.
