Premium Jet enjoys the warm glow of North Pole expedition success
Management and staff at Zurich-headquartered Premium Jet, which was chosen to support a camera crew working its way to the North Pole, is looking forward to seeing the resulting television series.

Management and staff at Zurich-headquartered Premium Jet, which was chosen to support a camera crew working its way to the North Pole, is looking forward to seeing the resulting television series.

The broadcast with the title Im Tiefflug zum Nordpol - Europas eiskalter Norden (low-level flight to the North Pole - Europe's ice-cold north) will be shown in four episodes from 27 December on MDR TV in Germany.

"We dispatched the Cessna Caravan for the expedition," says ceo Peter Hartmann. "This unusual task demonstrates Premium Jet's ability to operate in areas which can have the harshest weather conditions, be it for a top end business jet or just such an expedition aircraft."

The tour started in September at Leipzig, Germany and took in Greenland with Aasiat, Upernavik, Danmarkshavn and Station Nord among places filmed.

Other parts of the planned itinerary include Ny Alesund, Longyearbyen, Nordkyn, Kautokeino, Lofoten, Tromsoe and Jan Mayen in Norway, Hvammstangi in Island and Vagar on the Faroe Islands, returning to Germany in November.

Premium Jet, launched more than seven years ago manages a fleet of 15 aircraft including Gulfstreams, Falcons, Challengers, Learjets and Citations. "Our diverse fleet of light, medium and heavy jets is based in Europe, the CIS, the Middle East, Far East and Africa," says Hartmann.

Sales director, Marcel Wepfer says that demand for aircraft management packages is rising with negotiations to add new aircraft for charter and private use. "The secret is to offer a broad range of cust-omised bespoke packages to meet the individual requirements of each client. These packages range from specific services to a complete asset management arrangement."
