The Leasing Business in Air Transportation

Friday, September 24th, 2010

A growing idea that the business aviation world is embracing right now is leasing aircraft as a way for companies to get profits from private and also public airline travelers. Aircraft leasing embraces the idea of “renting” out aircrafts in order to fulfill some of the necessities that some find lacking in the normal commercial airline industry. Two of the main reasons for this are:

i)  Avoiding the finances that are required in purchasing new planes. Leasing out a plane is a better option for companies that do not have enough resources to purchase a private plane that they want. Planes require quite an amount to purchase, thus leasing them would be the more sensible option.

ii)  It poses as an option for excessive air travel for travelers who have the capacity to travel with private jets.   This provides a better option for employees from having to fly commercially at airports that constantly are jammed with passengers.

There are two types of leases that are available in the market right now.

1. Wet Lease

When we speak of a wet lease, we will consider the share of responsibility that is given to the lessee as compared to what the owner of the plane provides. Here, the plane owner is responsible for the provision of fuel, airport fees, taxes that are involved in the flying process and the duties thereof. The lessee therefore provides the cabin crew, maintenance, the insurance that is required and also the pilot. It is usually used in the peak traveling seasons and usually lasts as short as two years.

2. Dry Lease

The dry lease usually lasts for a longer time than wet lease. In this type of a lease, the lessee takes care of more than what he does in the wet lease. The condition of the plane is subject to the maintaining power of the lessee, while at his hands. This type of lease is therefore useful for long term plans that involve big companies like airline companies, governments and banks.

Some Important Facts About the Jet Charter Industry

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

The difference between the jet charter industry and the airlines is that air charters are those flights that are on-demand and nonscheduled transportation of passengers and/or cargo.

Hoovers.com reports that domestic passenger travel makes up 50 percent of the air charter industry’s revenue, followed by international passengers (15 percent), domestic air freight (10 percent) and international air freight (five percent).

So who is chartering jets? Large corporations do so that their top managers and executives can save time by skipping lines and restrictions on commercial airlines. Wealthy people get a private charter for the same reason: convenience. Sports teams, the U.S. military and government agencies also charter private planes.

In addition, chartering a plane also gives people and corporations a lot more options. Hoovers.com (citing the General Aviation Manufacturers Association) writes that “air charter planes have access to over 4,000 general aviation airports; scheduled commercial aircraft are restricted to the 500 U.S. commercial airports.”

Those who charter planes have a true wealth of types, capacity and amenities from which to choose. Need a helicopter? Charter it. Prefer turboprop? You got it! Want to fly to Istanbul in a multi-engine jet airliner with 200 of your best friends? It’s available.

Most chartered planes (85 percent) are fixed-wing aircraft while 15 percent are helicopters. Turboprop planes offer passengers a pressurized cabin, one or two pilots and the capacity to carry up to eight passengers. These planes will fly about 200 miles per hour and have a range of about 1,000 miles.

If those who wish to charter a plane need to go farther and faster, pressurized heavy jets have a range of up to 8,000 miles and can fly at 500 miles per hour. These aircraft can carry up to 18 passengers and can sport such amenities as a full bathroom and flight attendants.
