In May 2015, we secured our first ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance) commercial aircraft lease, with Thomas Cook Airlines. Since then we have expanded our Leasing business and we now operate a number of Airbus A330-200 aircraft serving customer airlines and routes to Europe, North America and beyond.
We offer both wet lease (aircraft, flight crew and cabin crew) and damp lease (aircraft and flight crew only) options to airlines who need extra capacity and a reliable, professional leasing partner. In 2017 we established a new crew base at Manchester Airport to support our expanding operations and increase the efficiency of our management and support.
In summer 2017, 20 members of our cabin crew spent the summer on secondment with Thomas Cook Airlines, strengthening our relationship and enabling Thomas Cook Airlines to welcome fully-trained A330 cabin crew for the peak season.
