Our restricted cash balance was $190.4 million and $246.5 million as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively, and was primarily related to our Export Credit Agency (“ECA”) financings and Export-Import Bank of the United States (“Ex-Im”) financings, our AerFunding revolving credit facility, our Brazilian Development Bank (“BNDES”) financing and other debt. See Note 12—Debt.
The following is a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash as of June 30, 2021, December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020:
The entire disclosure for cash and cash equivalent footnotes, which may include the types of deposits and money market instruments, applicable carrying amounts, restricted amounts and compensating balance arrangements. Cash and equivalents include: (1) currency on hand (2) demand deposits with banks or financial institutions (3) other kinds of accounts that have the general characteristics of demand deposits (4) short-term, highly liquid investments that are both readily convertible to known amounts of cash and so near their maturity that they present insignificant risk of changes in value because of changes in interest rates. Generally, only investments maturing within three months from the date of acquisition qualify.
