Types of Leasing         

    • Wet Lease or ACMI
      A wet lease is a leasing arrangement whereby one “Airline” or aircraft operator (the lessor) provides an aircraft, complete crew / only cockpit crew, maintenance, and insurance (Hull and third party liability) to another airline or aircraft operator (the lessee), which pays by hours operated. The term ACMI is an acronym signifying Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance. (The 4 main components of a wet lease) Wet Lease (ACMI) solutions are ideal for startup airlines, new route studies, seasonal or sudden demand peaks. Wet Lease Aircraft also fulfil the interim needs created by long-term fleet expansion plans whilst maximizing market share in the immediate term


    • Damp lease or AMI
      AMI (Aircraft, Maintenance and Insurance) is similar to an ACMI or wet lease, but the crew is provided by the lessee. Damp lease includes the provision that that crew provided by the lessee undergo safety and Emergency Procedures (SEP) training for the particular type of leased Aircraft.


  • Dry Lease
    The lessor leases just the Aircraft to a lessee. This transaction excludes the provision of a crew, maintenance and Insurance. The lessee has to acquire an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) and provide registration for the Aircraft.
