Munich and Beirut-based ImperialJet has already flown over a hundred hours with the second new Challenger 605 added to its charter operation in December, and is reporting brisk business. A third is expected on fleet in the summer, hot on the heels of a further Challenger 850 in the next two months together with a Gulfstream GIV during March.
"The second Challenger has travelled throughout Europe, the Middle East and Russia and has already been a big hit with customers and pilots alike who enjoy flying the aircraft," says Graeme Deary. "The customers love the layout with the club four around the table in the rear that provides the ability to carry more passengers but also provides for a larger bed for those travelling longer distances."
The company is reported to have ambitious plans, including the future acquisition of existing management and service providers. It has appointed representatives in Russia and Saudi Arabia, and has ordered five new Learjet 85 aircraft that are scheduled to enter service in 2014.
Established in 2004, ImperialJet has recently invested heavily in aircraft and staff, building on the experience of its teams in Munich and Beirut. It offers a variety of products and services primarily focused on aircraft charter, aircraft management, ACMI leases, shared ownership and fractional products.
The current fleet comprises Challenger 850, 605 and 604, Learjet 60XR and 60, and Gulfstream GIII types.
