Jet Aviation has added a second Boeing B737 (BBJ1) to its fleet of managed aircraft in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), effective immediately. The BBJ1 is based in Western Europe and is available for charter service. 

 Managed by Jet Aviation’s aircraft management and charter business in Malta, the Boeing BBJ1 has been added to the company’s Maltese air operator’s certificate (AOC).    

 “We are thrilled to expand our fleet for charter customers,” says Claudio Peer, senior director Aircraft Management & Charter Sales, EMEA & Asia. “This airliner-type private jet is ideally suited to customers who enjoy premium comfort and the latest technology for long-range flights.”

The long-range BBJ1 has a range of up to 9,260km and offers space for up to 11 passengers to fly in comfort. Furnished with a luxurious VIP interior, the aircraft features a master bedroom and ensuite bathroom with shower, separate guest and crew lavatories, and two side-facing divans that convert to single berths. The aircraft’s elegant cabin interior is characterized by clean lines, neutral tones and leather seating, and boasts all the essential passenger amenities, including a high-end entertainment system.   

Norbert Ehrich, VP Flight Services EMEA and Asia, adds, “Customers appreciate charter options to meet their varying needs. A larger jet provides greater space and comfort for longer flights and trips with more passengers. It is our pleasure to offer clients more choice for long-range charter trips.”
