Jackson Jet makes Swift Aircraft Management purchase
Following its purchase of Swift Aviation FBO in January, the acquisition of Swift Aircraft Management will broaden Jackson Jet’s charter and management services across all its locations.
The Embraer Legacy 600 will allow Jackson Jet to fly more passengers further.

Boise, Idaho-based full service operations Jackson Jet has broadened its investment in the Phoenix, Arizona market and in its charter and management offerings with the purchase of Swift Aircraft Management.

The purchase expands its charter fleet and management capabilities with the addition of an Embraer Legacy 600 and an Embraer Phenom 300 to its existing fleet of Citations and Pilatus PC12s. The Legacy 600, boasting a 13 passenger capacity and range of 3,250 nm, will allow Jackson Jet to fly more passengers to further destinations than ever before. In fact, as part of the Swift Aircraft Management acquisition, the company also receives FAA authorisation for worldwide charter operations. This is a highly coveted authorisation in the charter industry, allowing Jackson Jet to charter flights to popular destinations including Hawaii, Europe and South America in addition to the North American routes it has historically flown.

“The ability to fly larger and further than ever before is a game changer for us and our customers,” says CEO Jeff Jackson. “We’re thrilled we can now serve these customers with our top shelf service rather than refer those requests on to industry partners.”

Earlier this year Jackson Jet purchased Swift’s FBO facility, Swift Aviation, located at Sky Harbor International airport in Phoenix.
