About Skyworld Aviation

Propeller 45137

Skyworld Aviation is an aircraft marketing organisation, specialising in the regional sector with offices in the UK, France and Canada. Established in 1996 as Skyways Aviation, we offer consultancy, marketing and lease/asset management services to a large client base worldwide. The change in name was triggered in 2009 when we broke away from our relationship with Skyways in Sweden to focus on further developing relationships worldwide. To date we have concluded over 550 aircraft related transactions for around 200 clients to a value of over $1bn making Skyworld Aviation one of the most successful aircraft marketing organisations in the regional sector. A list of some of our most recent clients can be found here.


A brief history

Skyworld Aviation started trading as Skyways Aviation in 1996 and the company quickly established itself in the regional aircraft market through its links with Skyways, a dominant airline in the Scandinavian market at the time, operating over 50 regional aircraft at its peak. Skyways Aviation was tasked with managing the fleet of the airline during a period of significant change in the Swedish domestic market when several airlines were merging into one.

Once the main period of change was complete, Skyways Aviation began to branch out into third party fleet management and aircraft trading. In 2009 Skyways Aviation became an independent organisation and rebranded as Skyworld Aviation, giving freedom to expand the customer base, explore new territories and diversify business with new aircraft types. Skyworld Aviation soon became one of the leaders in the industry and remains one of the dominant players in regional aircraft trading.  


Skyworld Aviation provides the following primary services. We also provide ancilliary services such as consultancy, technical advice, advice on aircraft sale/lease contracts. We also have the ability to provide marketing services for third parties in the regional market. For more information please contact Juliet Hewitt on + 44 1753 832088,


Skyworld Aviation is a market leader in regional aircraft marketing, having processed over 550 aircraft transactions in 21 years of operation, across 60 countries in all continents. Specialist areas are in the 19-120 seat capacity used aircraft as well as freighter aircraft in the regional market. Through its extensive experience and network of contacts, Skyworld's worldwide presence has meant that a well established operator contact database is in place which is vital to effective marketing. We have established a bespoke email marketing system which is the most effective way of quickly going to market, alongside all the usual media channels via the web and classified advertising. Established customer relationships also play a vital role in the nurturing of aircraft placements and this is where Skyworld's extensive network of contacts and experience comes into play. We pride ourselves on being one of the most successful aircraft marketing agents worldwide.
If you have an aircraft to sell and would like to discuss your aircraft disposal plans please contact Peter Greensmith on + 44 1753 832088,
As part of our remarketing services we also provide Market Reports by aircraft type. Once appointed we will provide an overview of the market for any aircraft type in the regional market, and we can also provide these as a separate service if a market analysis is required. For more information please contact Juliet Hewitt on + 44 1753 832088, See sample report here.
Through its network of contacts, market intelligence and an Internationally based team, Skyworld Aviation is able to source aircraft which are not necessarily on the advertised market. The advertised market only represents a small proportion of aircraft that available for sale or lease, and using Skyworld's expertise and knowledge in the market we can match the right aircraft with the customer's needs from the right supplier. Additionally, we can provide a fleet evaluation study if seeking to operate a new type, to ensure the customer has selected the right aircraft for their operation.
Being 'in the thick' of the market, Skyworld Aviation is best placed for advising and negotiating lease rates / terms with potential customers. Once a lease is in place Skyworld Aviation can provide lease management services which includes monitoring and consolidating maintenance reserves, lease payments and claims throughout the term of the lease. We currently provide this service for specialist investment companies as well as airlines.
For more information on lease management and asset management services please contact Chris Beer on + 44 1753 832088,

    Skyworld Aviation is pleased to announce the sale of two EASA ERJ 145 LR’s, serial numbers 145564 (G-CIYW) and 145601 (G-CIYX).

GCAM brought both aircraft out of storage for return to service. G-CIYX left Cotswold Airport on Friday 3rd March, bound for its new life with a global aviation services company. The second aircraft, G-CIYW, was purchased by Nilin Group - an EASA Part M maintenance provider based in Turkey.
