Munich-based Jet Air Flug is adding seven new aircraft to its fleet - five Learjet 85s and two Challenger 605s.
Patrick Raftery, group CEO, says: "Our strategy is clear: we want to combine the world´s most advanced aircraft with the highest safety standards along with the world´s best service. The Learjet 85 and Challenger 605 jets complement each other very well, offering the perfect range and cabin versatility. Adding these new jets to our fleet will ensure we meet the needs of our very strong existing customer base in western Europe and Russia as well as supporting our ambitious plans into Africa."
Raftery says the Challenger 605 features a wide stand-up cabin and is equipped with the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite and an all-new cabin electronic system.
He adds: "It can whisk five passengers from Munich to Dar Es Salaam or Dubai to London non-stop in superior comfort. We like the option provided by the Bombardier Enhanced Vision System (BEVS) which provides pilots with significantly improved situational awareness and the ability to observe runway lights and the runway environment in difficult operating conditions, such as low visibility or darkness." He adds: "The Learjet 85s and the Challenger 605s will win us valuable new business."
