ILFC (International Lease Finance Corporation) is not for sale according to a report in the London Financial Times. Owner, insurance group AIG, now US government controlled after a bailout, has decided against a sale of its aircraft leasing unit after concluding it would not reap a big enough profit from the divestment of one of its crown jewels. The world’s largest aircraft leasing company was co-founded in 1973 by Hungarian uprising refugee Steven Udvar-Hazy. It has been part of AIG since 1990, has a portfolio of around 1,000 aircraft, and is a major customer of both Airbus and Boeing. Udyar-Hazy, who stepped down as Chairman in December, is reported to be ready to sever ties with the company where he is still CEO. www.ilfc.com
