Aircraft Finance in Aruba


This month marks the first anniversary of the entry into force in Aruba of the Cape Town Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment and the Protocol thereto on Matters specific to Aircraft Equipment. The Cape Town Convention covers various categories of mobile equipment, including (parts of) aircraft, space assets and railroad rolling stock, and has currently been ratified by 47 contracting states.

By registering an aircraft in Aruba, or by using an Aruban entity to own an aircraft, more certainty can be obtained with respect to the enforceability of security rights created on aircraft through applicability of the Cape Town Convention. The security rights will be recognized and enforced in all contracting states.
