April 14, 2021

Vinge has advised ALAFCO in connection with leasing of a brand new Airbus A320-NEO to SAS, delivered by Airbus from the production facility in Hamburg on 14 April 2021.

Vinge has advised ALAFCO Aviation Lease and Finance Company, a Kuwait-based, world-leading actor in the aviation leasing business, in connection with its leasing of an Airbus A320-NEO, the new, more energy-efficient narrow-body airplane, to Scandinavian Airlines Systems Denmark-Norway-Sweden (SAS). In addition, Vinge administered the registration of the airplane with the Swedish Transportation Authority’s Swedish Aviation Register and negotiated with SAS’s Swedish counsel in connection with the transaction.

Vinge’s team consisted of responsible partner Fredrik Wilkens, project manager Henrik Schön  as well as Anton Sjökvist and Elias Bohlin.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
