NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases a research report discussing ABS aircraft securitizations owing to coronavirus concerns.
The global spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is leading to negative ramifications on worldwide air travel. While it is too early to determine the full scope of the contagion’s effect on daily life and business activity, KBRA’s Aviation ABS Group anticipates that continued increases in documented cases of the virus could have an adverse impact on the short-term demand for air travel. Further, this scenario could directly influence aviation ABS transactions by possibly reducing the amount of cash available for such transactions. KBRA is actively monitoring the situation including the potential ramifications on our aviation ABS portfolio, which encompasses 48 transactions outstanding with an initial issuance size of more than $26 billion from 2013 to 2020.
