JetFlite International bases a Challenger 601 in Moscow
US-based JetFlite International has expanded its Moscow presence by adding a Challenger 601 based at Vnukovo airport and expanding its sales and dispatch staff there.

US-based JetFlite International has expanded its Moscow presence by adding a Challenger 601 based at Vnukovo airport and expanding its sales and dispatch staff there.

"From our perspective, Moscow is an emerging market and there is a lot of opportunity there," says ceo Bill Cripe. "This summer in Moscow we are flying one of our aircraft over 80 hours a month in charter. We have been offering a Gulfstream G200 out of Moscow and were confident enough that we moved another aircraft, a Challenger 601 there. There is a good chance we will also be adding a Gulfstream GV there."

The company has also hired two dispatchers to work in its Moscow office as well as two sales people and a mechanic.

JetFlite International has three major hubs; New York, Moscow, and the US west coast. Carrie Simpson, vp sales and owner relations, says: "Our customers fly out of Moscow to throughout Russia and Europe, the United States, the Galapagos Islands, Seoul, Korea, Asia, even Kabul, Afghanistan."
