Aero-Dienst steps outside Bavaria with first Phenom 300
Just one month after expanding its business jet fleet with an additional CJ3 based in Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich, Aero-Dienst has taken delivery of a brand new Embraer Phenom 300.

Just one month after expanding its business jet fleet with an additional CJ3 based in Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich, Aero-Dienst has taken delivery of a brand new Embraer Phenom 300. Owned by a new aircraft management customer, the jet will now be operated out of Dusseldorf with immediate effect. It means that Aero-Dienst will be stationing an aircraft outside Bavaria for the first time.

The Phenom 300 is the first aircraft of this type to be used commercially in continental Europe. It has a range of more than 3,400 kilometres and a flight time of up to four and a half hours, allowing non-stop flights to destinations such as Reykjavik, Bergen, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Moscow, Istanbul, Cairo, Malaga and the Canary Islands.

Aero-Dienst employs three pilots for the Phenom at its Dusseldorf base.

The Phenom 300 was delivered from the Embraer plant in Sao José dos Campos, Brazil, to Germany in November.

"We are delighted to have the Phenom 300 in our fleet, the only commercial supplier in continental Europe to do so," says Andreas Strabel, key account and aircraft management team leader at Aero-Dienst. "That we have just recently been able to win two new aircraft management customers demons-trates the positive perception that customers have of our professional team, and that is something that fills us all with pride.

"The Dusseldorf base means we are not only expanding our range of locations and offering companies there an attractive alternative for business travel, but are also now active beyond our existing bases in Bavaria."
