For newer airlines, which depend on an asset-light model for expansion, aircraft lease rentals can be a major cost. Essentially, aircraft can be bought outright by the airline from manufacturers or leased from specialized leasing firms that have a large portfolio of aircraft. Aircraft can also be purchased, sold to a leasing company, and leased back over a period – this is called “sale-and-leaseback,” which is a common means of financing purchases.

Proved reserves of oil (also called “1P”) are those reserves that can be recovered in the future from known reservoirs with reasonable certainty (usually 90% confidence) under present-day economic and operating conditions.
