Aircraft Leasing Business

The World’s Top 5 in the rapidly growing aircraft leasing industry

Expanding aircraft operations with integrated solutions

Our aircraft leasing operations expanded further in 2012 through acquisition of one of the world’s leading aircraft leasing companies, SMBC Aviation Capital.

As passenger traffic soars and demand for fuel-efficient aircraft increases, we expect the aircraft leasing market to grow substantially in the coming years. In response to this development, SMBC Aviation Capital plans to expand its fleet to over 600 modern technologically advanced aircraft, including direct orders with Airbus and Boeing.

The consortium that we formed with Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation and Sumitomo Corporation to expand aircraft operations has now built a team of over 300 professionals, providing custom-made solutions and meeting the wide-ranging needs of airlines and investors.
