Jackson Square Aviation is launched as a new aircraft leasing company

Jackson Square Aviation (San Francisco) has become the latest company leasing airliners to airlines. Boeing delivered 737-800s to JAL-Japan Airlines and Norwegian Air Shuttle last week. In sale leaseback arrangements, both carriers immediately assigned the airplanes – one 737-800 each – to Jackson Square Aviation (JSA), becoming the first new Boeing airplanes to be financed by the San Francisco-based company.

These airplanes represent the first two of 11 new Boeing airplane deliveries JSA will be financing this year.

Jackson Square Aviation is a full-service aircraft leasing company based in San Francisco with offices inSeattle, London and Miami, with an Asian office opening in 2011.

The company is named after the Jackson Square Historic District, one of the oldest commercial neighborhoods in San Francisco.
