Emirates talking to banks to finance aircraft purchase

June 25 - Emirates Airlines is talking to local and international banks to finance the purchase of new aircrafts that are to be delivered after May 2011, said a senior airline executive. The airline has already arranged for the money for deliveries by May 2011 but it needs financing for deliveries beyond that date, said Brian Jeffery, Emirates' Senior Vice-President for Commercial Treasury.


"We have received offers of finance from local and international banks that encompass both Islamic and conventional markets," he added. "We envisage that bonds [either guaranteed by export credit agencies or otherwise] will continue to be used as part of our financing strategy as long as the pricing remains competitive."


The airline has issued bonds to finance the purchase of  aircrafts in the past.


Earlier this month, the carrier placed orders for a record 32 additional Airbus A380 aircraft.
