Task: Valuation, Operational Management and Realisation

Sector: Aviation

Location: UK North West

Retained by the Administrators and a leading UK Finance House to provide marketing and indicative valuation advice to assist in the management and disposal of this regional airline’s fleet of thirty freighters, located in the UK and throughout Europe.

With four aircraft types on the fleet in various states of airworthiness, undergoing major overhauls, refurbishment and reconfiguration, not to mention being spread across Europe the task was a significant challenge.

The scope of our instruction was carefully agreed to meet the stakeholder’s needs and the practicalities of the immediate scenario, enabling strategic marketing and potential outcome advice to be provided in a timely manner. This enabled a realisation programme to be implemented and executed by the Administrator’s team.
