Germany-headquartered air ambulance specialist and special mission operator FAI rent-a-jet has acquired its 12th Learjet 60 SE. The aircraft will be refurbished by its Nuremberg-based MRO division FAI Technik, and will feature an all new interior with VIP grey leather seating for seven to eight passengers and high speed internet connectivity. It will also receive a newly designed exterior paint scheme.

This marks the company's third Learjet 60 refurbishment project, and the aircraft should be available from March next year.

FAI has also decided to discontinue the AOC of one of its charter businesses, Fly Alpha, in which it purchased a majority stake just over four years ago in order to move into the shorter two hour charter flight market. It will transfer Fly Alpha's Premier 1A and King Air 350 aircraft onto its own AOC.

Chairman Siegfried Axtmann comments: “Economically, it makes no sense to operate two German AOCs in parallel, therefore we have taken the decision to give up the second AOC and enrol Fly Alpha's aircraft into FAI's fleet, which now totals 25 business jets and one turboprop.”
