Supporting the Global Aviation Industry

Sanad is an asset financing company launched by Mubadala in direct response to the increasing need for liquidity in the aviation industry. The Arabic word for 'support,' Sanad is a strong new source of capital and a differentiator to Mubadala's global MRO product offering. Sanad works diligently to develop pragmatic risk and asset management solutions that enhance commercial performance and increase operating flexibility. The company has expanded quickly with a growing list of customers in North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.

With a focus on spare engines and rotable components, Sanad has entered into a number of asset leasing transactions including long-term dedicated component support programs directly with industry leading airlines throughout the globe, and indirectly through the support of a number of other carriers accessing the company’s expanding pools of spare inventories. Sanad is also entering into long-term spare engine support programs including the company’s launch transaction with German carrier Air Berlin which included the long term sale and lease back of the airline’s spare engines.

Operating in close partnership with Mubadala’s network of global aerospace companies, its contribution to the larger agenda is realized by the company's core objective to grow its aerospace customers' businesses with financial solutions.
