Swiss to wet-lease Adria CRJ900


Swiss International Air Lines will wet-lease an Adria Airways Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft, registered S5-AAO.The jet is eight years old and will be utilised by Swiss from July 1 until September 30. The aircraft will be initially deployed on flights from Zurich to Lyon, Hannover, Luxembourg, Leipzig, Dresden, Dusseldorf and Munich. A wet-lease is a leasing arrangement whereby the lessor provides an aircraft, complete crew, maintenance and insurance to another airline.

    Good idea to get extra cash. They don't need the plane plus thwy get the CRJ700 back to Ljubljana which was at Lodz (base being closed)

    I wonder what aircraft it is replacing. Is it that LX wants to phase out the Avros faster than they get delivery of CSeries? Or do they have a lack of crew as pilots are being retrained on CSeries?

    LX has continuous wet-in suppliers e.g Edelweiss, Helvetic, ... so nothing unexpected to lease JP to cover the peaks.
