Long-term Charter

Keep your schedule moving

Universal Air offers both short-term and long-term lease solutions. Whether you are managing overlapping maintenance schedules, periods of unseasonal demand, or building capacity into a new market, we can provide the aircraft to meet your needs.


ACMI is the best practice leasing model used in commercial aviation:


  • Short term: Unforeseen emergencies, such as a grounded aircraft, crew sickness, bad weather, and strike action can disrupt an airline’s schedule for days. To minimise delays, a short-term ACMI lease allows our clients to maintain continuous service across their operations.
  • Long term: Long-term leases provide prolonged use of an aircraft without the financial commitment and overheads of a dry lease and are an ideal solution for testing new routes and markets, meeting seasonal demand, and covering service disruption.
  • Cargo: Cargo leasing allows our clients to meet increased demand for freight capacity without dry leasing or purchasing aircraft. We offer monthly or annual contracts, and our team of leasing experts can source a wide range of specialist cargo aircraft as well as auxiliary freight.
