Dry Leasing is defined under EU regulations as an "agreement between undertakings pursuant to which the aircraft is
operated under the AOC of the Lessee".
In the UK, the period of transfer will not normally exceed seven months. However, it is possible to extend this dry
lease period for up to a further five months, totalling a maximum of 12 months for the dry lease agreement.
Note: After a dry lease period of 12 months, at least 5 months should elapse before making
another dry lease application for the aircraft.
Note: There is a charge associated with dry leasing applications. See the details on Leasing Application Charges.
It can also be helpful if the UK lessor nominates a co-ordinator for the lease and a contact in the foreign
regulatory authority who will be dealing with the lease arrangements.
