The impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the freighter aircraft leasing industry will be the central theme during Session 9 of the virtual edition of Cargo Facts Asia later this month.
In this session, scheduled for 08:45 a.m. China Standard Time (05:45 p.m. PST/8:45 p.m. EST/ 12:45 a.m. GMT) on Wednesday, April 22, we will be joined by Jerry Duan, Michael Steen, David Yu and Stefan Kageman.
Duan is the chief operating officer of Xiamen Aircraft Leasing, which has so far leased over fifty mid-life passenger narrowbodies to various Chinese airlines and is considering entering the converted freighter market.

The only senior International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading (ISTAT) certified aviation appraiser in China, Yu is also a professor of practice in finance at New York University in Shanghai (NYU Shanghai), a CFA charterholder and has a Ph.D. in finance from the University of Nottingham Business School.
