SkyWorks Client Recognized for Deal of the Year Award by Airfinance Journal
SkyWorks Client Aeromexico Recognized for Sale Leaseback/Operating Lease Deal of the Year Award by Airfinance Journal.
Aeromexico has been awarded Airfinance Journal’s 2021 Sale Leaseback/Operating Lease Deal of the Year Award for its lease-in of 12 737 MAX aircraft from DAE. The airline, which was advised on the project by SkyWorks, capitalized on beneficial market conditions to modernize its fleet and bolster its future narrowbody aircraft supply at a manageable cost. The deal represented a key milestone in the airline’s ability to execute its restructured business plan. In the words of Chief Commercial Officer Nicolas Ferri, “Aeromexico continues its strategy of having the safest, state-of-the-art, efficient, and least polluting fleet. The additional new aircraft will allow us to continue boosting connectivity in our main hubs to meet our customers’ demand with the best aircraft, service, and a fare family that meets their travel needs.”
According to SkyWorks Partner and Head of Commercial Matt Landess, “by running an efficient sourcing process and introducing competition for Aeromexico, we were able to deliver attractive pricing and terms to our long-term partner and client. We are proud of the outcome accomplished together with Aeromexico and for their continued acknowledgment of the value brought to bear by SkyWorks.”
The Airfinance Journal awards were selected by an independent panel of industry leaders who recognize significant transactions in the aviation finance industry.
