Suppliers like Fluid Transfer have found leasing very useful for overcoming the lack of Capex expenditure in airport budgets. A leasing solution helps to have your equipment delivered today, and not tomorrow.

Oak has also been financing de icing equipment for aircraft, both in the UK as well as in European airports, and ground handling equipment which included both aircraft tugs and generators and aviation fuel tankers. We are able to lease all ground support equipment, from passenger bridges to apron equipment, providing leasing solutions for busy airports with high operational turnaround pressure.

Airport Equipment Leasing Specialists, Oak Leasing

Oak has also been chosen by a one of the leading GSE companies based in the UK, 247gt Ltd. They specialise in GSE equipment both in Europe as well as the UK. They offer our innovative airport equipment leasing and finance option, which enables their customers to spread the cost over three or five years, helping to reduce the initial “cost per push back” and making a “cost effective aircraft turnaround” .

As with all airport runway machinery, equipment leasing or equipment finance is the route that airports choose to use to acquire the use of crucial equipment, be it fire tenders, tugs, or general GSE equipment.

As growth returns to the aviation sector, after a period of perhaps standing still, the requirement for airports to expand and renew both passenger and cargo terminals is growing.

With many European banks slow in offering their support for such enquiries, Oak Leasing is pleased to help fill the funding gap this has left behind.

The option of standing still is not an option, standing still in reality is slowly going backwards. It is crucial to keep investing in new equipment and services, to attract both the airlines, with speed of turn-around, which increases airport revenue, and increased passenger growth.

The pressure on airport infrastructure and GSE equipment is growing, as air traffic is set to double in the next 20 years. The greater the footfall, the greater the profit generated. The two approaches that airports are looking to are the Dual till and single till business models. Both require large capital investment, with one providing a better return on investment and capex.

Our airport equipment leasing and finance solutions make it very simply for GSE suppliers to equate “cost per push back”. This enables accurate tendering for contracts with both airports and airlines.In some European countries, we have the facilities to offer an operating lease, which enable your customer a perfect off balance sheet solution.

To this end, we have provided some airports with finance for their new LED lighting in new terminals. Whichever model the airports are considering, both will require airport equipment leasing and finance.

Together with a modern terminal, this will increase capacity, operating efficiency, and environmental sustainability with new efficient equipment.
