Frankfurt/Main, 7 December 2016 – DVB Bank SE (ISIN DE0008045501), the international transport finance specialist, launched its first mobile app. This application is called DVB AirApp (AirApp) providing an overview of commercial airliners compiled by DVB’s Aviation Research team. The AirApp is intended to be used for reference purposes only and can be downloaded via the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store and Blackberry World.
Bert van Leeuwen, Head of DVB’s Aviation Research, commented as follows:
“We hope that the AirApp launched today proves to be a useful instrument for a better and broader understanding of the assets from a financier’s point of view. The aircraft types included are Boeing, Airbus Bombardier and Embraer types which are currently in operation or have been launched as well as new aircraft developments out of Russia, China and Japan. Freighter aircraft are also included.”
The information included for each aircraft is divided in a data section and a short description of the aircraft type. For each aircraft type, the AirApp presents the specifications that determine in which market segment the aircraft operates. As airlines place orders based on an aircraft’s range and payload, the AirApp displays for every aircraft the range, seat count and cargo load (for freighters) as provided by the manufacturers’ marketing material. The AirApp further presents information about the first flight date indicating the age of technology applied in the aircraft, and the engine choices available. Besides the aircraft specifications, the AirApp introduces market information such as the amount of aircraft in service, on order, stored and the number of operators. In case the aircraft is no longer in production, the last delivery date is also mentioned. The quantitative data is completed with a short description containing the background of the aircraft type, some technical and/or operational characteristics complemented with market information and possibly information on the market potential for freighters (both production and converted freighters).
The information titled “An Overview of Commercial Aircraft 2017-2018” is also available as a booklet. The respective PDF is available for download on our website www.dvbbank.com > Business & expertise > Aviation Finance > Markets.
