Choosing a delivery / closing location for an aircraft sale and purchase is often an important characteristic when structuring a transaction, especially an international one. Guernsey’s European geographical location is increasing in popularity as a delivery / closing location being situation outside of the European Union.
Being just off the Northwest coast of France means that none of the main business aviation centres of Europe are more than a couple of flight hours away. Furthermore, it is centrally located for the North American and Middle East / CIS / North African markets falling in the same time zone as the United Kingdom, meaning Guernsey is conveniently situated for banking and aircraft registry activities associated with the closing of an international transaction.
