Finally this quarter we see the anticipated spike in purchase intent: an 11% increase for a new aircraft and 8% increase for a pre-owned aircraft, where the preferred type remains a large-cabin aircraft,” says ASG Managing Director Jeffrey Lowe.

“We see the same positive trends in the region that we highlighted last quarter persisting: pre-owned inventory declining, asking prices flattening out, market stabilizing and the trend line continuing to move towards a more balanced market between supply and demand.

“The ‘feel good’ factor has been growing consistently each quarter,” he says.
