Competition for wide-body charter market
AELF Flightservice has entered the wide-body wet leasing and ACMI charter market, with its first A330-200 aircraft, now available for work in passenger and auxiliary cargo configuration.
This is the first of four A330-200 that the company with offices in Chicago, Miami, and Dublin plans to introduce into service by the end of the year.
The company, which has been in the dry leasing business for nearly six years as Presidio Aircraft Leasing, has recently re-branded with the addition of the wet leasing service.
The aircraft will be operated in a strategic partnership with Malta-based Maleth Aero. Maleth Aero, which was formed in 2011, holds an EASA-approved air operator certificate, and will operate for AELF Flightservice as a fully integrated team. (ah)
