What Is It With The Irish Register

Hello all,

This is something that has been bugging me for quite some time. I have seen a number of airlines now, notably Transaero, Alitalia and Air One but I am sure other do as well, use the Irish register to register their planes. Why is it that companies in Russia and Italy and elsewhere use this register so often? I can only think it must either be a tax thing or that these planes are owned by an Irish leasing agency.

Kind regards

EGPH

There are quite a few aviation leasing companies here.

This is interesting:

It is funny as an Irish aviation enthusiast to see AZ & UN a/c with Irish regs.

Russia has quite big taxes for Western aircraft, that is why you see all the VP and EI registered birds.

Quoting EGPH (Thread starter):

Taxes is the big reason, but the home of the leasing agency is a factor.

Thanks for your replies, seems that taxes (as I suspected is a big reason), similar to many biz jets using the Manx register. However I thought the location of the leasing agency would not have had a massive influence as many ILFC leased aircraft (to quote just one example) operate under the register of the airline's choice. Thanks anyway for the information.

It is probably just simpler to register in country of the legal owner compared to somewhere totally random.

There are some countries which make the registration of foreign operated aircraft very easy.
