German operator FAI rent-a-jet has bid farewell to its penultimate Learjet 55 aircraft. The aircraft has already been replaced by a Learjet 60 that was recently acquired in Bulgaria.
Chairman Siegfried Axtmann says: “Our fleet replacement and harmonisation project is on track. We anticipate outsourcing our last Learjet 55 by mid-2018 as scheduled, completing our transition to a more modern LR60 fleet.”
FAI currently has 11 LR60s in service. The company recently added its largest corporate jet to the fleet, an Airbus A319CJ, which will be available for lease and ad hoc charter in mid 2018 following a cabin upgrade.
