What is ACMI leasing?
ACMI stands for Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance.
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.
