Factors accounting for this will be the growing volume of passenger traffic accompanying economic growth in the emerging countries. especially in Asia, and the expansion of the LCC airline industry. Looking ahead, the “One Stop Shop” business platform, which was formed by the companies of the Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group (SMFG) in collaboration with Sumitomo Corporation, will strive to meet the diverse needs of airline companies and aircraft investors.
