AerCap: "We are very proud to launch the first ever notes issuance for Airbus aircraft guaranteed by ECGD. This transaction provides lower cost funding for AerCap and establishes another new source of capital following the closing of new credit facilities with Chinese and Singaporean banks and a facility for general corporate purposes. This transaction continues to demonstrate our resourcefulness in accessing diversified sources of capital," Paul Rofe, Group Treasurer. Source: AerCap, 29-Jun-2010.
