Following its successful completion, Smart Aviation are delighted to announce another prestigious airline-to-airline lease contract.
In early Summer, our valued suppliers, Jet2.com approached us with the challenge of sourcing an aircraft to be based in the UK on a dedicated standby basis. The brief was to find an aircraft to provide valuable back up to their 39-strong fleet, to ensuring the maximum integrity for their programme, safeguard their on-time performance and ultimately to minimise disruption to their passengers.
Smart accepted the challenge, and thanks to the considerable Smart network of airlines and contacts throughout Europe, we were able to conclude a deal with Strategic Airlines of Luxembourg, using a dedicated Airbus A320.
A two month contract was signed, covering the peak months of July and August, with the aircraft and several sets of crews to be based in Manchester for the duration of the lease.
Smart Aviation Sales Director, Matthew Savage noted “it is very satisfying to be asked by a carrier such as Jet2.com to help them with such a significant project, and to ultimately deliver a successful solution for them. We work very hard to ensure that our relationships with our suppliers are just as strong as our clients, and this ethos continues to win contracts and helps Smart grow and diversify its business”.
