Ever wondered how airplanes move seamlessly across the globe for maintenance, painting, or new deliveries without disrupting airline schedules? Enter the world of aircraft ferrying—a vital yet often overlooked service that keeps the aviation industry running smoothly.

In this blog, we’ll explore what aircraft ferrying is, who relies on it, and why it’s a game-changer for aviation operations.

What is Aircraft Ferrying?

Aircraft ferrying is the process of transporting an airplane from one location to another on behalf of a customer, which could be the owner, operator, or a lessor. This service spans a wide range of aircraft, from small single-engine prop planes to the largest aircraft such as Boeing 777s, Airbus A380s, and Boeing 747-8s.

Why Do Companies Need Aircraft Ferrying?

There are numerous reasons why aircraft need to be ferried:

  1. Maintenance: Aircraft may need to be moved into or out of maintenance facilities.
  2. Painting: Some aircraft need to be ferried for a new paint job or touch-ups.
  3. Interior Refurbishment: Moving aircraft for interior replacements or upgrades.
  4. Lease Transfers: Aircraft coming off lease and moving to different lessors.
  5. New Deliveries: Brand new aircraft deliveries from manufacturers to their new owners.

Current Trends in Aviation

One significant trend in aviation today, especially among airlines, is the shortage of pilots. This shortage makes using aircraft ferry services even more beneficial. By outsourcing non-revenue flights—such as maintenance, post-maintenance, and delivery flights—airlines can keep their pilots focused on revenue-generating flights.
