    What is ACMI Aircraft Lease
    (Aircraft - Crew - Maintenance - Insurance)

    Sometimes referred to as a ‘Wet Lease’, the Lessor provides to the Lessee the four main components required to start operations; Aircraft - Crew - Maintenance - Insurance

    The Lessee will pay to the Lessor an agreed fixed cost per block hour operated and all additional variable costs such as fuel, airport handling, flight catering, crew accommodations etc. are arranged and provided by the Lessee.

    Variants to ACMI can be: ‘Damp Lease’; where the Lessor provides the flight crew to operate the Aircraft and, in most cases, a supervising cabin crew member whilst the Lessee provides the Cabin Crew who are trained and validated by the Lessors regulator.

    All options have their advantages

    Advantages of ACMI

    ACMI wet leasing allows operations to start and react quickly to demand as the crew are already certified and ready to operate the aircraft. Airlines operations can expand and contract their capacity on short notice without the burden of having to employ or train additional staff or bear the upfront costs of purchasing a new aircraft on long term commitment.

    Advantages of Damp leasing

    When an airline needs additional capacity on short notice but already has the resources and crew available to operate the aircraft; Damp leasing allows the airline to customize and adapt the lease for their own needs and purposes benefitting from the advantages of ACMI, but removing some of the financial commitments.

    Dry leasing an aircraft

    When Dry Leasing an aircraft, the operator can negotiate whether the aircraft is an operating lease or finance lease. In both circumstances, the aircraft registration and AOC (Air Operators Certificate) must be provided by the Lessee.
    Under an operating lease, it is usually a shorter-term lease agreement and is not on the Lessee’s balance sheet. When a finance lease is agreed, the aircraft becomes an asset and forms part of the Lessee’s balance sheet. Under a finance lease agreement, airlines can negotiate to purchase the aircraft at the end of the Lease term
