Hi Fly with self-handling at Lisbon Airport
07 December 2015
Hi Fly obtained a self-handling license issued by the Portuguese Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC), being now able to provide ground handling to its own aircraft, passengers, and luggage at the Lisbon International Airport.
This license allows the airline not to depend on third parties to do its handling, thereby reducing the risk of delays due to lack of equipment, staff or even time availability, and managing to respond more quickly to any request.
Hi Fly, chaired by Paulo Mirpuri, is an EU - OPS carrier, FAA approved, EASA and IOSA certified. The Group owns 20 aircraft, and half of them are operated by Hi Fly: A321´s (1 unit), A330´s (5 units) and A340´s (5 units), exclusively available for wet lease worldwide. Wet leasing (supply of aircraft with crew, maintenance and insurance) is Hi Fly core and sole business, therefore unmatched operational expertise in this very specific field has been developed over several years of experience.
