The IBA’s response to the war in Ukraine
The Aviation Law Committee is concerned with several major areas of law. Aircraft transactions and financing are always a major interest. The Committee also follows developments of international law with respect to airlines in both economic and tort areas, and also focuses on competition issues related to aviation.
The Committee provides an opportunity not only to contribute to the development of aviation law but also to make useful contacts with aviation attorneys from all over the world. This is particularly important in an international industry such as aviation, where attorneys are required to deal with aviation attorneys in other countries on a regular basis.

Many interesting topics were discussed. Including but not limited to the following topics:
Travel by air is the safest and fastest mode of transport in the world and has seen tremendous growth over the years. The global aircraft leasing market is estimated to reach US$247bn by 2026. With US$180bn required for funding to meet the rising aircraft demand, the necessity of entering into a lease is borne by the need to acquire an aircraft without increasing debt obligations.
