6th October 2021: Leading Dublin-based aircraft lessor, Goshawk, is pleased to announce the extension and upsize of its unsecured Revolving Credit Facility (RCF) from November 2022 to November 2024 with a syndicate of banks. The current facility of $1.2bn will be increased to $1.4bn with 18 participating lenders, including two new lenders, into the facility.

We are pleased that we continue to have access to liquidity at attractive terms and appreciate the support of our Tier 1 lenders who upsized their participations, which illustrates the confidence that our lenders have in our business model and how well we have navigated through the Covid crisis.”

Citibank acted as Sole Coordinator and Facility Agent for the transaction and O’Melveny & Myers LLP acted as legal counsel to Goshawk.
