April is always a busy month for Smart Aviation’s team, as our airline colleagues gear up for Summer with some pre-planned maintenance or to cover the occasional late delivery.
However April 2012 will go down as a truly memorable month for Smart’s specialist airline-to-airline ACMI division.
At a time when many of our competitors are scaling back their ACMI operations or lowering their expectations, the Smart team continues to enjoy unparalleled successes.
Over the course of the month we looked after several major projects on behalf of some of our most valued airline customers, all of whom have come to appreciate the professional and cost effective services Smart provide.
Smart believe the reassurance of knowing an expert member of our team is always here to get flying programmes on track is just one reason why our ACMI business continues to grow.
Here’s some of the more interesting aspects of April 2012’s ACMI activity:
- Aircraft chartered by Smart on ACMI contracts operated 503 sectors during the month, and our 24 hour team kept an eye on every single one of those take-offs and landings
- During the month, aircraft operating for us clocked up 972 hours in the air
- Our aircraft flew to 71 different airports
- 12 different airlines flew subcharters on behalf of our customers
- The smallest aircraft flying for us was a Saab 340, the largest a Boeing 777
- The longest flight was just under 6 hours. The shortest? 18 minutes block to block
But we have the capacity to do even more.
If your current broker is scaling back their operations, or just isn’t giving you the service you deserve, or if you want to find out why so many airlines trust us 24 hours a day to solve their capacity problems – give the Smart team a call. We’re always here.
