KlasJet adds 3rd business jet to its fleet – Hawker 800XP
European business aviation company KlasJet has announced the expansion of its business jet fleet by adding a third aircraft – mid-size Hawker 800XP. The new business jet is already delivered to KlasJet and operates charter flights across European destinations.
The mid-size twin-engine Hawker 800XP accommodates up to 8 passengers and thee crew members. Built in 2000, the aircraft has a refurbished cabin (2013) with premium leather seats, high quality wood applications and light overall interior. The aircraft allows conducting a direct private jet charter flight with a distance of up to 4700 km (2540 miles).
“Over the past few years, we have been persistently increasing our operations despite any volatility in the market. With the growing number of customers, as well as thanks to the third business jet in our fleet, we expect to reach 700 flights by the end of 2016. The key to our successful growth is an exceptional flexibility, even when it comes to the flight length itself. Though being short-to-middle range aircraft, our business jets have already served such long-haul destinations as Indonesia, Iceland and Nigeria,” commented Vitalij Kapitonov, the CEO of KlasJet.
KlasJet also operates two medium business jets – Bombardier CRJ200 and Challenger 850. The aircraft have unique interior and exterior designs which differs them from standard white business jets. The aircraft accommodate 10 and 14 passengers, accordingly.
All three KlasJet business jets are operated under aircraft management programs. The programs include full operational and technical management of business jets, crew recruitment and management, sale and execution of flights, etc. – all of which allow the business jets to minimize the costs and generate profit to its owners.
“We also provide full-scale CAMO support under our own EASA Part M approval – both for our fleet and third party airplanes. The range of our services together with a vast customer network allows us to offer private jet owners to significantly decrease aircraft maintenance costs. For us, it’s an opportunity to further expand our capabilities and provide our passengers a wider choice of unique VIP jets. We this in mind, we plan to add two extra business jets – one heavy and one mid-size airplanes – by the end of the year”, shared Vitalij Kapitonov, the CEO of KlasJet.
