Aircraft Availability | Applicability: Airbus fleet

Airbus Aircraft Family: A300 | A310 | A320 | A330 A340 | A350 | A380

Airbus can support both Airlines and Lessors with Lease transitions. 


For a Lessor, Airbus can support the overall aircraft recovery process and conversion to suit the needs of the next Lessee. In a back-to-back transition scenario, Airbus can act as a third-party Continuing Airworthiness advisory between both CAMO. When no back-to-back agreement is found, the aircraft can be managed under Airbus CAMO.

For an operator whose aircraft is reaching end of lease, Airbus can provide the necessary advisory and assistance so that the aircraft and its records are prepared in due-time and in respect of any relevant contractual obligation (lease return conditions).


According to the scope of work and your needs, the following elements may be included in the package:

  • Contractual requirements review
  • Aircraft and records inspection
  • Working party organisation and execution
  • Aircraft modification (Cabin, systems, livery)
  • Flight Services
  • Storage and CAMO
  • Airworthiness Review
  • Support Customers and interface with authorities throughout the process


The solution to your transition project will be tailored to your needs and the project will be managed by Airbus to ensure efficient TAT and cost control.
