History of Air Sale

Air sale - our history

Established in the 1970s, Air Sale is one of the oldest independent consultancies providing advice to the aerospace and banking industries on all matters relating to aircraft sales, purchasing, leasing and financing. We not only ensure our clients the best terms available in the market, but will also save its clients an immense amount of valuable executive time…and time equals money!

Air Sale has arranged leasing, financing and sales of a diverse range of aircraft from the humble DC3 in the first year of operations, to modern day narrow and wide body jets. We have also provided advice and guidance to both start-up airlines and established national carriers on all matters from airline certification to complex aircraft financing and advice and guidance to financial institutions on all matters relating to aircraft financing and sales.

Air Sale has acted for buyers, sellers, lessors, lessees, borrowers and lenders alike, giving the company a unique 360° perspective on the industry. In that timeframe Air Sale has developed an almost unparalleled knowledge of aircraft values, operational costs and the methodology of aircraft leasing and financing.

Whether an airline is looking to lease, finance or purchase an aircraft, our services have proven to be cost-effective time and again. Airlines that have retained Air Sale have realised that the executive time saved and the final purchase price or lease rate negotiated has made Air Sale’s services more than cost effective.

Air Sale does not broker aircraft. In all cases, we work on a retained basis, acting solely for its client and thereby avoiding any conflicts of interest.
