Boeing sees stronger capital markets, lower financing from aircraft lessors

Boeing forecasts leasing companies would fund approximately USD6.5 billion in delivery financing in 2010, compared to an estimated USD9 billion in 2009 (MarketWatch, 17-Dec-2009). Boeing also observed improvements in the aircraft finance market, with capital market funding becoming available again, but it expects to provide a similar, or slightly lower, amount of aircraft financing in 2010 as it did in 2009.
