FAQ n.19556

Leasing, scenario 4. Could you specify for these three cases if the lessor must have a TCO authorisation? Case 1: A third country operator (lessee) uses an aircraft wet leased-in from an EU carrier (lessor) operating flights to the EU under the AOC of the lessor, and using the flight number of the third-country operator.

Answer

Neither the lessee (TCO) nor the lessor (EU carrier need a TCO authorisation, because the flights are performed under the responsibility of an operator that does not fall under the definition of a third country operator.
