On Friday (August 11, 2022), AerCap Holdings N.V. reported their second quarter and H1 financial results for the period ending June 30, 2022.

At June 30, 2022, the company had $17.0 billion in total available liquidity.

In Thursday’s announcment, AerCap’s Chief Executive Officer, Aengus Kelly, said,

“AerCap generated strong results in the second quarter, with a significant increase in activity across all of our businesses. The ongoing recovery in air travel continued to strengthen across all major regions, and was manifested in high levels of cash collections and greater utilization of our fleet during the quarter. The strength in passenger demand, coupled with supply constraints across the industry, is resulting in a favorable leasing environment.”

During the second quarter, AerCap executed 184 transactions including 125 lease agreements, 16 purchases and 43 sales. The company also continued significant deleveraging, ending the quarter with an adjusted debt to equity ration of 2.8 to 1.

As of June 30, 2022 AerCap’s owned, ordered or managed portfolio included 3,599 aircraft, engines and helicopters.
