ACMI Companies

Sun Sep 01, 2019 11:15 am

Hi everyone,

I was wondering how are the ACMI providers. Is there some majors ACMI such as major lessors like Aercap / ALC / CDB etc?
Or it's more small companies offering this service?

Also, does major Lessor companies offering ACMI deals?

Many thanks for your feedbacks.

There are large ACMI providers on the cargo side. Atlas Air would be one of them. It has contracts with Amazon Air, QANTAS and DHL, etc.

In order to provide ACMI services, a company must have operating certificates and regulatory approvals to provide service. The leasing companies don't have this.

It really comes down to how much the company leasing the services is willing to pay, the providers I have dealt with are pretty flexible in their offering, they can tailor a service level to suit most price points.

I think you may have a minor misunderstanding on the difference, perhaps?
If so, basically as you stated there are "lessors" i.e. the aircraft owners, who lease the aircraft to an operator (as you named, Aercap/ALC/CDB etc).

Then you have ACMI operators/carriers - airlines such as EuroAtlantic Airways, HiFly, Titan Airways, Smartwings, Miami Air, Omni Air, etc. as well as cargo ACMI operators in Atlas, Polar and others - that lease or lease to purchase the aircraft from the lessors.

As far as I know, I haven't seen a ACMI operator that was also the lessor, unless it would be that the lessor is the parent company owning an operator. Like MO11 said, the company (operator) needs to have operating certificates, regulatory approvals and such in order to even operate for hire/commercial purpose.

I would assume that ACMI operators have certain deals (charging by block hour) depending on the length of contract and scope of the operation they are proposed to operate.

QR provides ACMI for both passenger and cargo airlines. Cargolux does ACMI work as well.

And ATSG owns Cargo Aircraft Management, ABX Air, ATI, and Omni.

In some cases Titan (or another affiliate) dry-leases an airplane to Amazon, then it is operated under CMI agreement with Atlas. Similarly, CAM dry-leases an airplane to Amazon (or DHL), and it is operated (CMI) by ABX or ATI.
