At the end of 2020, Prague-based Time Air added new aircraft to its Nextant 400XTi fleet, which has grown from five to soon to be nine aircraft. The operator says the Nextant 400XTi represents the top end of the light jet segment and boasts one of the greatest flying ranges on the market. “Nextants allow us to dispatch non-stop flights literally across Europe, from Gibraltar to Stockholm or from Dublin to Antalya,” says CEO Martin Prazsky. “We’ve also added a completely refurbished Challenger 300 to our fleet that is set to take off in the near future. The market may have slowed down in some segments in recent months, but our clients have a great desire to travel again. We’ve welcomed many new customers, and last year we racked up the most flying hours in our company’s history. We are pleased to offer our clients an affordable alternative to flying on commercial airlines to get them where they need to go.”

He is a huge fan of the Nextant 400XTi: “It represents the best of the light jet segment and provides great value for money. It has a spacious and comfortable cabin and a flat floor and is able to cover longest distances within its category. With Nextants, we can reach any European destination. Our clients are happy with them, too, and we’ve received nothing but positive feedback. We also offer the newly refurbished Challenger 300 for those who prefer midsize jets.”

Time Air entered 2021 with four more aircraft than in 2020. It hopes the pandemic and restrictions on travel will ease in the coming months, and is doing everything to prepare for an inflow of clients looking to make up for lost time. “Our current clients love to repeat the experience, and we’ve seen a lot of new customers who have discovered the benefits of flying private,” Prazsky continues. “Many say they’re looking for an alternative to flying with commercial airlines for safety reasons and to avoid the traditional crowds. The pandemic has affected the whole aviation industry. Customers are trying to find the safest way to travel and find that flying with private jets is a wonderful alternative. Our priority is the safety of our clients, which is why we’ve developed our own safety standards called CoronaSafe. We apply these rigorous rules to the key operational areas of aircraft maintenance, flight planning, and crew and customer safety. Recently, we have added frequent regular testing of pilots and crew members for COVID.”
