KlasJet strengthens its positions in business aviation
KlasJet, a European private and business charter carrier, part of Avia Solutions Group, added two more exclusively designed Boeing 737VIPs aircraft to its fleet, strengthening its positions and becoming one of the most capable private charter operators in Europe.
After the introduction of the latest aircraft, KlasJet’s diversified fleet will consist of 7 aircraft, designed to meet demands of various business customers: from small VIP delegations to whole sports teams with tailored services.
“We are aiming to attract more clients from different markets with the introduction of new airplanes to our fleet. These aircraft are entering service at the time of the high demand – there are many queries and some scheduled flights already,” notes Justinas Bulka, CEO of KlasJet.
One of the newcomers – LY-FLT is a uniquely designed Boeing 737VIP with a versatile business class cabin, transformable between 68 and 104 business class seats.
Another one – LY-BGS is an economy class Boeing 737VIP with 148 seats. It is painted to look the same as KlasJet’s LY-KLJ. After the summer season, its interior will be modified and turned into a 68-seat business class cabin.
“We introduced aircraft with refined economy class cabins as we see increased demand in charter flight, ACMI, AOG, and other segments. In autumn, these will be upgraded to 56 and 68-seat business class cabins,” says Mr. Bulka.
According to him, KlasJet’s capability to acquire new aircraft is because of its competitive advantage – being part of Avia Solutions Group, and working closely with group’s MRO companies FL Technics, Jet Maintenance Solutions, as well as with AviaAM Leasing, a tailored leasing solutions provider.
