What does a lessor have to do with aircraft technical management?

Over 40% of the world’s aircraft fleet is leased rather than owned by airlines, according to Boeing data. It is only natural that banks and other financial institutions play a major role in aircraft leasing, as these are high value assets that efficiently employ large amounts of capital and have a great ROI. However, while these companies are run by financial specialists, plane leasing still contains an aspect that falls outside of their area of expertise – and costs them millions. 

The average term for the lease of a new aircraft is years, with general trend being 9 years which is close to half of its life. Most of the time, it is the lessees responsibility to take care of aircraft maintenance.
