The U.S. market represents almost one-half of the commercial aircraft currently being operated in the world. Bristol has been active in this market for many years by providing remarketing, financial and advisory services. We are of additional value to first-tier carriers by assisting in the disposition of surplus aircraft into off-shore carriers where financing is also a key ingredient in successful sale. Our experience in Africa, Latin America, Europe and the Far East--plus our willingness to aggressively pursue more difficult deals--provides us with a unique niche in the marketplace.
We are also active in acquiring and financing aircraft for middle-tier credits in the U.S. and have a thorough working knowledge of the regional airline marketplace.
Our professionals are experienced in integrating fleet planning, technical, legal, regulatory and financial considerations into successful transaction closings.
In addition, Bristol works actively with tour wholesalers and charter operators to structure mutually attractive charter programs. We help carriers to identify and develop market strategies and are well-qualified to analyze and support specific programs designed to increase revenue potential from international operations.
