The Board of Avation, a commercial jet aircraft leasing provider, advises that it has purchased 25,000
Ordinary Shares on the PLUS Market at 28 pence per share for cancellation.

The authority to buy-back shares was given to the Directors at the AGM held on the 5th of December
2008.

As a consequence the number of shares in issue will decrease to 25,555,510 after the shares purchased
have been cancelled.

The Directors' holdings represent 17.27% per cent. of the 25,555,510 Ordinary shares now in issue.
                                                   
               The directors take responsibility for the contents of this announcement.
