ACMI Explained

The agreement between Fly2Sky Airlines and Air Algérie is an example of an ACMI charter. ACMI stands for Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance. This type of agreement allows airlines to collaborate in a flexible way.

Here’s how it works:

  • The lessor (Fly2Sky): Provides an aircraft, along with a fully trained crew, maintenance for the duration of the contract, and insurance coverage.
  • The lessee (Air Algérie): Takes responsibility for the flight operation itself, including marketing the flights, selling tickets, and managing ground handling (fueling, catering, etc.) at airports.

ACMI charters offer several benefits:

  • Airlines can adjust capacity quickly: Airlines can utilize ACMI to meet seasonal demands or cover for unexpected situations like grounded aircraft due to maintenance.
  • Reduced risk for new routes: Airlines can test new routes with minimal investment by using ACMI instead of committing to purchasing new aircraft or setting up their own operations in a new region.
  • More efficient fleet utilization: Airlines with surplus aircraft can generate revenue by leasing them out under ACMI agreements.

Overall, ACMI charters are a valuable tool for airlines to adapt to changing market conditions and expand their network offerings.
