Under the terms of the rate-per-flight-hour contract AJW’s leasing arm, AJW Leasing, will provide a main base kit for the aircraft.
UK-based AirTanker provides support to the UK military and is using the A330 to offer a civilian charter service for those in the armed forces.
The firm plans to acquire a further five A330s and make them available for commercial and military lease. The first of these widebodies is set to be wet leased to Thomas Cook Airlines.
Tony Carder, AirTanker Services’ director of aircraft leasing said that the AJW support contract was a “crucial” step in the organisation’s growing capability in the civil leasing market.
