Airports & aviation

Airports bring societies together and facilitate the rapid flow of people, cargo and ideas through our fast-paced and ever-shrinking world. They are cultural crossroads that facilitate face-to-face business transactions, linking vastly different regions and economies. Airlines and airports strive to do this with maximum efficiency and security and will need expanded capacity and novel ideas in the 21st century to face the challenges posed by increased passenger demands and environmental stress.

Rebel understands the vital importance of aviation for global business and economic growth. Air travel is expected to continue outpacing gross domestic product (GDP) growth for the foreseeable future. This means new or expanded capacity must be built into the existing system that is already at or reaching its limit.

The sky is not the limit
Airports face numerous constraints when trying to expand, whether it is physical land acquisition or public resistance; creative solutions are often the only option. We address these challenges head-on. Our experienced team of financial analysts and aviation experts are ready to provide the novel solutions our clients needs.

We help commercial and general aviation airports, developers, and stakeholders identify financing and funding sources to realize the development of greenfield airport facilities, terminal buildings, and other capital expansions. Our professionals have a depth of experience with general airport revenue bonds, special facility bonds, and other tax-exempt and taxable instruments, as well as other funding sources including the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grants, FAA letters of intent, Passenger Facility Charges (PFCs), and other federal and state programs.

Aviation is worldwide
Internationally, our professionals work closely with government organizations and with multilaterals like the World Bank, International Finance Corporation (IFC), Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), and the U.S. Export-Import Bank in the Caribbean, Central and South America, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia to structure financing packages from capital markets and multi-lateral sources that make critical aviation projects a reality.
