FortAero, a Moscow operator and exclusive sales agent for Russia and the CIS for Nextant Aerospace, has completed the purchase of a third 400XTi remanufactured jet. The company cited low operating costs, longer range, outstanding reliability and superb customer support as key factors in the decision.

FortAero was appointed a sales agent in June 2013 and placed an order for two 400XTi aircraft at that time. With the purchase of its third aircraft, the company becomes Nextant's largest European fleet operator.

“The Nextant 400XTi has been an incredibly popular addition to our charter service offering due to its low operating costs, superior range, reliability and cabin comfort,” says FortAero ceo Vadim Opryshko. “On average, we fly both of our 400XTi for 80 to 90 hours per month and the demand keeps increasing. We can maintain this kind of utilisation because of the outstanding dispatch reliability and the responsive customer support from the factory and Nextant authorised service centres.

"Originally we had very high expectations and Nextant has definitely met them. The 400XTi is a perfect light jet for the charter market in Russia and the CIS.”
