UK operator Centreline is expanding its managed fleet with two summer arrivals. First to join the fleet will be a factory-new Dassault Falcon 8X that has a range of 6,450 nm, linking European customers to destinations including Singapore and Cape Town. The 8X is designed to enhance the travel experience of its passengers with a quiet and comfortable cabin, and it offers access to shorter runways.

Also joining is a King Air C90GTx, which will further diversify Centreline’s portfolio. The aircraft is designed for flights between regional and business airports in the UK and short hops to European cities. The C90GTx delivers favourable runway performance at restricted airfields and the operator hopes to attract new customers to the benefits of business aviation with the King Air's price point.

Head of commercial operations Lizzi Kershaw says: “I am super-excited for the new additions. Their performance capabilities will complement our current fleet of light to mid-size jets and will open up new opportunities.”

The 8X and the C90GTx will both fly on Centreline’s worldwide AOC and will increase its fleet to 11 aircraft. The Centreline roster has continued to grow since it became part of Pula Aviation Services in 2018.
