Members of SMBC Aero Engine Lease (“SAEL”) participated at ISTAT Americas in Austin, Texas, USA, from 3rd to 5th March 2024.
SAEL consistently focuses on the latest trends and technological innovations in the aviation industry, providing customers with top-quality engine leasing solutions.
ISTAT Americas provided a valuable opportunity for experts and stakeholders in aircraft engine leasing to come together, allowing our company to discover new business opportunities and strengthen leadership at the forefront of the industry.

Roger Welaratne (MD & CEO) made a comment that “SMBC Aero Engine Lease attended ISTAT Americas in Austin this week. The conference was very well attended, and we met a large number of customers and partners over the 2 days. The business mood remains very strong with a lot of engine financing needed by the airlines in the near term. It was refreshing to hear that the OEMs are getting a handle on the supply chain issues and they expect the current AOG situation to normalize in about 2 years. In the meantime, demand on spare engines will continue to remain very high. Austin is an amazing city and was an ideal location for the venue”.
