Sparfell makes a virtue of fleet diversity
The arrival on fleet of a shiny model 350 means that Sparfell now has seven Challengers on its roster. Recent expansion of numbers from several manufacturers bodes well for a hectic first half of 2022.

This has been a busy period for Swiss-headquartered aircraft charter, management and sales specialist Sparfell, with 14 aircraft joining its fleet. In the final few weeks of last year, and continuing into 2022, several aircraft joined the company's charter fleet, specifically a Cessna CJ2+, one Challenger 350, two Falcon 7X and an ACJ319.

The Challenger family is well represented with a total of seven aircraft. Besides Gulfstream, Cessna, Embraer and Bombardier, Sparfell also now includes Dassault jets in its fleet, with its first two Falcon 7X.

The same applies to Airbus, as the first ACJ319 will be available to clients from Q1, further broadening the spectrum of solutions for varying client demands.

CEO Edward Queffelec says: “Sparfell's philosophy is to deliver tailor-made solutions, which means that every client is provided with exactly the aircraft that corresponds to the mission. This explains why we have such a high number of varying manufacturers and aircraft types in our fleet. Versatile and knowledgeable, Sparfell does not focus only on one type; we are an operator that manages many different aircraft.”
