What is wet-leasing?
Wet-leasing, also known as ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance) leasing, has become a common industry practice where airlines lease aircraft and accompanying crews from other carriers. Passenger feedback indicates dissatisfaction with the experience of flying on older aircraft and the lack of control over their airline choice. But there are growing concerns regarding potential labor law violations within the wet-leasing framework.
Please note: This dashboard is a visualisation of the wet-lease, not a rigorous documentation of every flight. The aim of the dashboard is to give an impression of the scope of wet-lease in Europe, identify airlines who provide and use it, and highlight the responsibility of both providers and users for the social practices they use.
