Air Serbia is seeking an expert for aircraft wet-lease ACMI agreements. The individual in question would participate in all aspects of interaction with potential and selected short-term aircraft suppliers, support the ACMI negotiations process and analyze the performance of ACMI contracts during and after their completion, among others. Air Serbia has increasingly relied on ACMI (aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance) contracts over the past few years and currently wet-leases a number of aircraft to support its flight operations. A wet lease is a leasing arrangement whereby the lessor provides an aircraft, complete crew, maintenance and insurance to another airline. Air Serbia’s CEO, Jiri Marek, recently said, “Currently, we are looking into the longer-term strategy because leisure demand is from mid-June until mid-September, and whatever calculation you do, a dry-lease option with the additional crew for three months of operations, that mathematics doesn’t work. We are looking either to make some capacity provider agreement on a long-term basis, five-plus years or trying to enter into some joint venture agreements with reverse-seasonality operators. We would like to have a constantly available shortlist of aircraft with pre-negotiated commercial terms and technical reviews to be able to act promptly”.Further requirements for the ACMI expert position, as well as the application form, can be found here. The application deadline has been set for January 25.
