Definition of Aircraft Leasing

An aircraft is provided by a lessor (the owner of the aircraft) to a lessee (someone who is renting the aircraft). The lessee is able to utilize the aircraft any way they choose within the stipulations of the signed contract. The lessee pays the lessor an agreed monthly fee for the use the aircraft.

There are five different types of Leasing. These are ACMI or Wet lease, Damp lease, Dry lease, operational lease and financial lease.

Jetway acts as an intermediary in this process ensuring that the interests of both parties are taken into consideration. Jetway provides a full service solution from initial aircraft choice to sourcing, contract negotiation and signing. In the interests of both parties, Jetway provides a full time onsite Operations Manager with every lease, ensuring that everything from catering to aircraft maintenance runs smoothly and without burden on the lessee or lessor.

ACMI or Wet lease

ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance) also known as a Wet Lease. An aircraft is leased out to the lessee including crew, maintenance and insurance.

Although the crew is provided by the lessor, the agreement does not include their transportation, daily expenses, crew duty travel and hotel accommodation. All other aspects such as the crew’s salaries, maintenance fees and insurance bills are provided by the lessor. Any additional insurance are provided by the lessee, an example of this could be war risk insurance.

The lessor charges the lessee for the use of the aircraft according to its block hours. A block hour is defined as the time between when the chocs (blocks placed on the aircraft wheels) are removed before take off and replaced after landing. Depending on the type of aircraft the lessor sets a designated amount of block hours per month that a lessee must adhere to.

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 crew, maintenance and Insurance. The lessee has to aquire an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) and provide registration for the aircraft.

Operating lease

An operating lease is a long term agreement that usually is compared to the short economic life of the aircraft takes place within 2-7 years. This is beneficial for the lessee because they do not have to bear the cost.

Financial leasing

A lessee has the option of purchasing the aircraft they are leasing after the lease term has been completed. The price is decided upon through negotiations with the lessor and is usually over 75 percent of the aircraft usable life.
