Airbus Guarantee

Cover of aircraft financing

Brief description of Airbus Guarantee

An Airbus Guarantee is a guarantee on first demand covering the risk of bad debt losses (excluding the structure risk). Normally, the contractual set-up of the covered export transaction consists of a leasing contract, an isolated financial loan granted to a special-purpose company and covered by the guarantee and a subsequent finance lease to an airline or an operating lease company (asset based financing).
