Founded in 2010, AerFin is an aviation aftermarket player specialising in end-of-life services by offering short-term leasing, component contracts, trading and supply of whole aircraft/engines, and piece-part components. AerFin is based in the UK, with headquarters in Caerphilly, Wales, and facilities at Gatwick Airport, England.
The business model is based on three key activities:
- Acquire aviation aftermarket assets (whole aircraft, engines and aircraft components) from airlines, lessors, OEMs and MROs.
- Prepare assets for sale (disassembly, inspection, repair management, restoration of technical records and tear-down of aircraft (if strategy is to part out)).
- Exit assets through various channels maximizing their value (whole-asset sales, leasing, components sale, exchange programs, pool programs, aircraft-on-ground support).
