Grossmann Jet Service, the Prague-based executive jet operator, is making a base in Cannes, South of France, this summer. From the start of July it is basing its six-seat Cessna Citation II, the newest addition to its management fleet, at the airport with supporting crew. “We are seeing increased demand from our clients for trips to the Mediterranean – for business and leisure. We will also be marketing the aircraft in Montenegro, Croatia and the Dalmatian Coast – the new hot spots for high net worth individuals who want quick access to their yachts.” said CEO Dagmar Grossmann.
The aircraft will operate from both Cannes and Olbia in Italy with an ideal range of around 1200nm enabling direct flights from the Mediterranean bases to destinations including Istanbul, Larnaca, Kiev, London and Casablanca. The aircraft will also be well placed to offer charters within the popular ‘Mediterranean banana’ – covering Malaga, along the coast to Barcelona, Cannes and the Amalfi Coast of Italy.
“This is the first time Grossmann Jet has based an aircraft outside of the CEE region. It reflects the increased amount of business being carried out in the region by CEE businesses and reinforces our strategy to bring East and West together and make private flying more convenient and accessible,” she added. Dagmar and her team will be at EBACE in Geneva during 17 – 19 May to determine ground support partners.
Grossmann Jet operates an Embraer Legacy 600 and Hawker 900 XP, alongside the CJ2. All Grossmann Jet aircraft are fitted with onboard special egg cookers that produce excellent soft boiled eggs, and state-of-the-art waffle makers, ensuing the perfect breakfast. iPads on all the jets are another recent useful addition.
