engine maintenance cost control, basic unscheduled

NAC Chief Commercial Officer Jim Murphy.  "One very important factor is

that these additional services and benefits will be available to any

Nordic Aviation Capital customer, including smaller

airlines, who haven't been able to take advantage of Fleet Management

Programs in the past."

to be able to offer this engine operating

cost plan to our leasing portfolio customers," added Martin Moller,

Chairman of Nordic Aviation Capital.   "We have a delivery stream of at

least 90 P&WC powered aircraft running right though to 2021 and this

programme will offer risk and commercial control

to operators securing their aircraft through NAC which will allow our

customers to concentrate on their core business."
