In this episode, I am joined by a new voice in African aviation, Dainius Staniulis, the Vice President Commercial at Avion Express. 

Together, we explore a relatively new concept for African aviation that we touched on in episode 189 with Sylvain Bosc, CEO of Avico. The topic is wet-leasing or ACMI which stands for Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance.

✈️ We discuss how African airlines can use this solution to deploy capacity where and when required and not just as an emergency response.

🌍 We talk about seasonality and the opportunity to deploy capacity in Sub-Saharan Africa during the European “low season”

🛫 We also identify which airlines are the best fit for the solution?
