Altavair maintains strong relationships in the commercial debt and capital markets having borrowed over $6 billion of debt from 46 financial institutions across 5 international regions and played a key role in a $600 million KROLL rated commercial aircraft private ABS. Altavair is also experienced in the private equity markets, having raised two commercial aviation investment funds representing over $1 billion in committed capital from a broad range of domestic and international investors including large institutional investors, university endowments, insurance companies, and family offices. More recently, Altavair formed a long-term partnership with KKR where Altavair will manage an additional $1 billion of capital from KKR related funds to create a global portfolio of leased commercial aircraft.
From locations in Seattle, London, and Singapore, Altavair represents two independent companies and teams that work together to cover the world. The members of the management and marketing teams average over 29 years of experience in commercial aviation leasing and finance and have successfully executed multiple strategies at all points within the commercial aviation cycle over the last 16 years. Based on a deep perspective and knowledge of the aviation industry, it is our experience coupled with an innovative approach to finding solutions that allows Altavair to continually provide both superior customer service and investment returns.
