Blade’s operating leases consist of airport and heliport terminals, offices, vehicles and aircraft leases that are embedded within certain capacity purchase agreements (“CPAs”). Upon meeting certain criteria as stated in ASC 842 Leases, the lease component of a capacity purchase agreement would be accounted for as an embedded lease, with a corresponding balance included in the operating right-of-use (“ROU”) asset and lease liability.
During the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company has added the following leases in accordance with ASC 842, the details of which are discussed as follows.
A CPA for three aircraft became effective in February 2023 for a three-year term ending February 14, 2026 (previous term was less than one year). In case of early termination by Blade, a one-year revenue guarantee will be pro-rated to the date of the termination. In addition, Blade has the right for immediate termination with no penalty if a government authority enacts travel restrictions.
A CPA for seven aircraft was restated and amended in March 2023 for an additional two years for a total five-year term, ending March 31, 2028 (previous term was for three-years ending March 31, 2025 for six aircraft). Blade has the right to terminate the agreement without cause upon 60 days’ written notice, upon such termination a one-year flight hour guarantee will be pro-rated to the date of the termination and the operator will be entitled to retain any unapplied deposit paid by Blade at the time of such termination, in addition, Blade has the right for immediate termination with no penalty if a government authority enacts travel restrictions.
The Company allocated the consideration in the capacity purchase agreements to the lease and non-lease components based on their relative standalone value. The non-lease components for these agreements primarily consist of the costs associated
with flight operations. The Company determined its best estimate of the standalone value of the individual components by considering observable information from publicly available market rates.
