Little Jet Company is taking great strides
The new Citation Bravo operated by Little Jet has eight individual cabin seats rather than the usual seven plus one layout. This means that it can carry more passengers without the need to use the toilet seat on takeoff.

Gloucestershire, UK-based The Little Jet Company has welcomed a new Citation Bravo to its fleet to coincide with its fifth birthday, while captain Peter Hamlet, first officer Matt Yemm and business development executive Martin Harrison have settled in well to their roles. Little Jet is also expanding its fleet and opening a new office and handling facilities. Its current fleet consists of two Citation Bravos and a King Air 350i for commercial charter operations, as well as a number of additional aircraft operated NCC and POC. It is the only company at Gloucestershire airport offering charter through Xclusive Jet's AOC, and has recently been approved as a pet carrier at the airport in conjunction with local FBO Weston Aviation. Located within an hour to Bristol and Birmingham, Gloucestershire can offer a more cost-effective solution to passengers in the region.

The latest Bravo to join Little Jet's fleet offers a unique seating arrangement, with eight individual cabin seats rather than the usual seven plus one layout. This means that it can carry more passengers without the need to use the toilet seat for extra capacity, and allows each passenger to have their own space. Both Bravo aircraft are not subject to owner’s approval.

The company has also invested in its passenger lounge facilities to enhance the private jet charter experience, as well as offering handling and FBO services to visiting aircraft. It is the only FBO on the airfield that operates within airport opening hours and does not charge FBO extension fees if the airport is open. Little Jet's FBO offers services such as secured parking, a dedicated passenger lounge and airside access for drop off and pickups.

“We are delighted to welcome another Bravo to our fleet,” say directors Barry Preece and Jason Bishop. “This additional aircraft complements our current fleet, as we have been working with Citation Bravos since we started aircraft charter services just over five years ago. The additional Bravo allows us to increase our current capacity, allowing more choice and flexibility to clients and customers.

“It’s an exciting time for LJC. We have recently expanded by opening a new office and FBO facilities at Gloucestershire airport as well as welcoming new members of staff to the team. We would like to thank all of our customers and aircraft owners that have used us in the last five years and look forward to working with them in the years to come.”
