Over 1000 Deals Post-COVID-19 Plunge
“In total, IADA dealers accounted for 1011 transactions in the April-December time period, not counting preowned aircraft sales handled by our OEM members,” said IADA Executive Director Wayne Starling. “Our dealers registered 285 sales in December alone, by far the most active month of the year and double any other COVID-19 impacted month.”
Looking towards 2021, IADA dealers ended the year by putting another 74 aircraft “under contract” in December. Strikingly, dealers reported that only 36 of the 554 transactions closed in the fourth quarter involved lowered prices. Marking a return to stabilized prices, that contrasts with 45 deals that involved aircraft with lowered prices on sales of 174 aircraft in the second quarter, as the industry began recovery from the unprecedented plunge in activity during March.
