The Little Jet Company, based at Gloucestershire airport in the UK, has expanded again. The company has welcomed another aircraft to its fleet and now has a base at a third UK airport.

The Little Jet Company has also just enjoyed its busiest summer on record. There were passengers travelling with it who had never booked a private jet before.

“We are delighted to say that we are continuing to grow,” says director Jason Bishop. “The signs are that we are going from strength to strength, and we are feeling optimistic about the future.”

The Little Jet Company has opened a new base at Brighton City airport, offering a luxury service for business and leisure clients. The company already has bases at Gloucestershire and Bournemouth, where it operates a fleet of Citation Bravos and King Air 350is. It has also welcomed another aircraft to the fleet, an eight seat King Air 200, which will be based at Brighton City Airport.

“Opening a base at a third airport is a significant milestone for The Little Jet Company,” continues Bishop. “We are also pleased to welcome a new crew on board.”

Brighton City airport, commonly known as Shoreham airport, was founded in 1910. It is a major base for flying activities on the south coast and for those conducting business in the south east of England. It provides an excellent entry and departure point for Western Europe and the Channel Islands with easy access to Gatwick Airport, London and the rest of the UK.

Whether it is a worldwide or European business flight, a special occasion with family or friends, or an international sporting event, The Little Jet Company offers a personal and comprehensive executive jet airline service.

The Little Jet Company is run by Jason Bishop and Barry Preece who met at school. They provide services including privately owned jets for charter, management of aircraft and ground handling services.
