The Sparfell aviation group has welcomed its fifth aircraft in 2021, a Challenger 300, to the fleet of managed aircraft on its Austrian AOC. This increases the Sparfell Luftfahrt fleet of Challenger 300/350s to six.

The Challenger 300 seats up to nine passengers in a spacious and comfortable interior. It joins a diverse fleet with AOCs and offices in Geneva, Vienna, San Marino and Paris, which includes light jets such as the Phenom 100, midsize jets such as the Praetor 600 and ultra long range jets such as the Gulfstream 650ER.

“We are delighted to welcome a new aircraft management client and this beautiful Challenger 300 to our charter fleet,” says MD Bernhard Wipfler. “The charter summer season is just about to start, and we expect a lot of demand for this aircraft and our entire charter fleet. It is the fifth aircraft the Sparfell group took over in 2021 and we have other additional aircraft already confirmed.

“The management of these aircraft and taking care of charter is the core business of Sparfell Luftfahrt. However, the Sparfell group offers several additional services under one roof. Beside aircraft management and aircraft charter, we offer aircraft trading/transaction services, aviation consulting, exterior and interior aircraft aircraft design, luxury asset management and lifestyle management combined.”
