wet lease(redirected from wet-leasing)
Also found in: Dictionary.
The leasing or hiring of a commercial aircraft from another carrier complete with a flight crew, but not necessarily with a cabin crew. All major servicing is performed by the owner-carrier. The aircraft, however, carries the hirer's logo and insignia for the period of the lease. The antonym for the term is dry lease.
