AerCap Holdings N.V.

AerCap is the world’s largest aircraft lessor and traces its roots directly back to the two founders of the aircraft leasing industry - Guinness Peat Aviation, established in 1975, and International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC), established in 1973. It is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (AER) and is headquartered in Ireland with offices in the Netherlands, the United States, China, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates.

In May 2014 AerCap acquired US-headquartered ILFC, at the time the second largest aircraft lessor in the world, from US insurer AIG. This transaction transformed AerCap’s business and saw it move from being a top 10 aircraft leasing player to a top two player. Following the closing of the transaction ILFC's fleet was transferred to Ireland in 2014 and AerCap moved its headquarters from The Netherlands to Ireland in February 2016.
