FlairJet, the UK-based aircraft management company, has inked an agreement to manage Surf Air Europe’s first Embraer Phenom 300. The twinjet will enter service next month and be operated by FlairJet.
“I am excited to forge this partnership with FlairJet, given that our business objectives to further expand European operations on both fronts align significantly,” said Surf Air Europe CEO Simon Talling-Smith. “This is an important move as we work to expand our footprint globally and bring our successful [all-you-can-fly membership charter] product from the U.S. to new members in the growing intra-European business travel market.”
In the seven years since it was established in 2009, FlairJet has accepted 13 Embraer Phenoms into its fleet and paved the way for commercial operations with the Phenom 100 and 300 in Europe. FlairJet and parent company Flexjet manages a broad range of business jets that are operated under FlairJet’s AOC or through Part-NCC operations. In addition, FlairJet has managed the acquisition, acceptance and delivery of more than 25 Embraer business jets.
