An ACMI lease is also known as a wet or damp lease. A wet lease is a leasing arrangement whereby a supplying airline (the lessor) provides an Aircraft, full Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance (ACMI) to a customer airline (the lessee) which pays by the number of block hours operated. Compared to a damp lease, where the lessor would provide the cockpit crew only and the lessee providing their own cabin crew on the leased aircraft.
Damp leasing is useful when a lessee requires additional capacity but has surplus cabin crew of their own. This not only reduces some cost to the lessee by removing the crew hotac and crew daily allowances but also maximizes operational efficiency and onboard service familiarity. The lessee provides the ground services such as fuel, handling, and catering.Contact us today to find out more about our aircraft leasing solutions.
Our Areas of Expertise
ACMI Aircraft leasing – Long term
Airlines turn to Long-term ACMI leasing as it is an effective solution to a planned requirement and period of time, whilst not holding the lessee (client) to the longer-term financial commitments and overheads of a dry or operational lease.
This measured approach is ideal during strategic expansion, when testing new routes and markets, seasonaldemand or for start-up airlines as leasing a jet avoids significant up-front investment in aircraft, crew, maintenance, all with minimal financial exposure.
Airlines can also look to use ACMI leasing when forecasting maintenance schedules, lease deferrals, aircraft deliveries of their existing fleet and crew training. All of which have the potential to face lengthy delays and operators can forecast such and plan the provision of ACMI aircraft in advance coverage of their schedule with minimal operational and service disruption.
Our ACMI Leasing team has considerable aircraft charter and lease management experience, whether it's providing aircraft for cross regional leasing, wide bodied aircraft for the Hajj pilgrimage, regional aircraft on PSO routes or peak summer holiday demand, we have your requirements covered.
We have airline partners worldwide, through this global network of operators and local relationships that we source aircraft in advance for planned requirements to supplement aircraft fleets and to improve fleet efficiency during seasons.
ACMI Aircraft leasing – Short term
Operational disruption can occur at any time and it is vital for operators to maintain programmed integrity with minimal disturbance to passengers. we are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year providing operational support to airlines globally.
The smallest of delay can have a considerable impact on an airlines schedule with the knock-on effect disrupting operations for days. This can be caused by an AOG, crew sickness, bad weather or strike action and it is paramount for airlines to minimize delays. Short term ACMI leasing is an emergency recovery service for airlines.
We offer unrivalled operational and commercial airline experience and with our extensive network of connections and our global database, we will source the most suitable solution in a timely fashion. Whilst isolating the disrupted schedule, the airlinesoperational team is then able to focus on preserving service continuity.
Cargo ACMI Leasing
In unprecedented times, airlines globally are turning to Cargo ACMI leasing to facilitate the increased demand for freight capacity, whilst allowing airlines to remain versatile and react quickly to the ever-changing needs of a dynamic aviation market.
Just like ACMI leasing in the passenger airline world, cargo operators can benefit from the flexibility that ACMI offers by not having to commit to long term fixed costs and investments in aircraft and crew when purchasing or dry leasing aircraft. Instead, theycan contract as required, on a monthly or annual basis, depending on their own contractual demands with their clients. We have access to all aircraft types to suit your capacity needs and have the expertise to assist in this specialized field.
Aircraft dry lease
A dry lease aircraft is a leasing arrangement whereby an aircraft financing entity (lessor)provides an aircraft only (without crew, engineers or ground staff). An airline contracts the aircraft (without crew, maintenance or insurance) from a leasing company or bank, placing the aircraft on their own air operators’ certificate (AOC) and providing the aircraft registration, however it uses its own flight and cabin crew to operate the aircraft.A dry lease agreement will be impacted by a number of elements including depreciation, maintenance, insurance as well as the political and geographical location of the lessee and typically lasts upwards of two years.Dry leasing is a more cost-effective lease over a longer period of time for a lessee as they would not be outsourcing costs associated with ACMI (Wet or Damp lease) such as crew (hotac travel), maintenance and insurance, of which they have no control over and these aspects would be managed by themselves.
Our team of consultants provide robust financial solutions and strategic advice tailored specifically to the needs of your business and the unique dynamics of the aviation industry.
What are the benefits of ACMI?
An ACMI lease generally lasts between up to 12 months and is typically utilized for the following reasons as opposed to investing heavily in new aircraft as the operator would only be paying for the aircraft when it flies compared to carrying the overhead during the low season also:
Seasonal demand / Network expansion
Each market and region will have a peak season and airlines will always be looking to expand their network by testing new routes and adding frequency to their schedule.
Both requirements can be in the range of 2-6 months period (or longer) and operators will look to lease aircraft in to cover this need for additional capacity as ACMI provides the flexibility required whilst also being a cost-effective solution.
Maintenance delays / Late delivery of airplanes
Planning maintenance downtime is the easy part, ensuring that there are no delays during maintenance or unplanned maintenance occurrences is a huge challenge for operators and can cause considerable schedule disruption or cancellation to service when this occurs. Such delays can be weeks to several months in time. When faced with order backlogs due to demand, this leads to aircraft delivery delays for the Aircraft Manufacturers. In current times, we are seeing many operating lease deliveries being deferred until later in the year or beyond, this may also cause delayed deliveries due to a lack of maintenance slot availability as these aircraft will require further maintenance due to the downtime experienced.Longer term ACMI leasing solutions ensures that planned scheduled flying is unaffected during these periods of uncertainty.
Flight crew shortage
Crews can be in short supply whether it's due to demand, delays in cabin crew training or continued sickness. ACMI fills this void with the provision of the crew as well as aircraft.
