Hybrid forms of ACMI

In order to meet market demand SmileAir provide two niche solutions:
CMI – Crew, Maintenance and Insurance - solution for airlines with aircraft capacity, but need to outsource operating segment of operation for whatever reason: lack of crew, lower cost of personnel, strike, etc. In CMI model, Client’s aircraft is leased to a Carrier which leases it back to the Client together with crew, maintenance and insurance, while the aircraft is operated under the Client’s callsign.

Damp Lease – Another hybrid form of ACMI lease developed to accommodate Lessee’s preference to have their own cabin crew providing Lessee’s specific service on board, while Lessor will provide flight crew, aircraft, maintenance and insurance for hourly flat fee.
