Pacific Air Charters has ordered two P2012 Traveller aircraft for immediate delivery and 23 additional options to expand the fleet. The Honolulu-based operator is a provider of Part 135 charter services in the Hawaiian Islands.
Multi-engine operations over water provide a significant safety advantage for the company's market area. The P2012 Traveller will also offer very competitive operating costs due to its FADEC piston Lycoming engines.
Passenger comfort was a key factor in the operator's decision. All single seats have a generous pitch, a dedicated window and in-seat amenities such as USB port, cupholder, seat pocket and armrest; it has an in-cabin luggage compartment; and a dual air conditioning system can be operated on the ground as well through a DC power connection to cool the aircraft before boarding.
Chief operating officer and Part 135 director of operations Pat McNamee says: “We are excited to bring comfortable, convenient and modern multi-engine travel to the islands of Hawaii and other areas of the Pacific Ocean. The P2012 Traveller is the perfect aircraft for our routes.”
Tecnam P2012 and special mission platform sales and business development manager Francesco Sferra adds: “We are thrilled and honoured that Pacific Air Charters has chosen Tecnam as its trusted partner for its passenger operations in the Pacific region. We pride ourselves on providing world-class aircraft and services that prioritise safety, efficiency and reliability.”
