It is a great time to be a Canadian airline and the future remains very bright. To stay ahead in the evolving world of aviation finance, we invite you to join leaders in our industry and their advisors on June 4 & 5 at the 29th Canadian Airline Investment Forum in Toronto.

Back for its 29th year, this one-of-a-kind conference features a number of new speakers and updated content, and offers an unrivaled platform for interactive discussion. Financiers and aircraft operators will benefit from learning what new deals are being arranged, what terms are demanded, what structures are favoured and how risk is being managed. With the industry experiencing a shift from traditional financing to new products, some of the questions to be addressed include:

• How are lessors, lenders, ECAs and manufacturers arranging financing for 2018 and beyond?
• Is there room for new entrants? What are the trends in the Canadian market?
• What are the latest developments in the areas of capital markets solutions, operating leases and ECA financings?

Insight Information has organized an outstanding event that includes an expert faculty featuring senior executives from the major Canadian airlines, and representatives from the world’s leading aviation banks, aircraft lessors and aircraft manufacturers. Join our faculty of experts and a large group of your peers for a unique opportunity to explore the crucial relationships between airlines, manufacturers, financial institutions and investors, and learn how innovative strategies are being employed for greater growth and profitability. We encourage you to attend Canada’s major aircraft and airline finance event where you can network with the leaders in the industry and have your questions about the industry’s current and future direction answered.
