European business jet charter and management company Sparfell has added several aircraft to its charter fleet over the past couple of months. These include a Gulfstream G450 with the registration OE-LSC and the Global 7500 with the registration OE-LOE, both operating under the Austrian AOC. Additionally, the company's Maltese AOC has welcomed a Challenger 3500 and the Global 6500. The latest addition is a Gulfstream G500, flying under the Austrian AOC.

With close to 40 aircraft, Sparfell's continued growth highlights its position as a prominent player in the aviation industry. The company's dedication to expanding operations and personnel further reinforces its commitment to delivering exceptional services to clients in Europe and worldwide.

"At Sparfell, we constantly strive to exceed our clients' expectations by offering an expanding fleet of diverse aircraft to be able to respond to any need in business aviation," says CEO Edward Queffelec. "Our focus remains on providing unparalleled customer service while prioritising the highest standards of safety in all our operations."

Sparfell's growth is not limited to its fleet expansion. The company continues to invest in and nurture its team of aviation professionals, ensuring the highest level of expertise and service. By fostering a culture of excellence and continuous improvement, Sparfell maintains its position as a trusted partner in the private aviation industry.

The company has also solidified its collaboration with M.R Associates Design by acquiring partial ownership of the Swiss design studio, a specialist in aircraft interiors. Sparfell becomes an official stakeholder, further enhancing the synergy between the two entities.

This marks an exciting chapter for both organisations. With 16 years of expertise in design and creation, M.R Associates Design is evolving its identity, embracing innovation and excellence in every aspect of its work. At EBACE 2023 it presented its latest project, a Gulfstream G450 from the charter fleet that combines power and versatility, offering a spacious cabin capable of accommodating up to 14 passengers for comfortable long haul flights. Equipped with advanced avionics, the G450 is a sought-after aircraft among pilots and aircraft owners.

"The partnership between Sparfell and M.R Associates Design represents a collaboration of passion and expertise. Together, we strive to bring forth extraordinary designs that push the boundaries of aviation and exceed the expectations of our discerning clientele," says board member and creative director Florent Magnin.

M.R Associates Design's approach to aircraft design encompasses meticulous attention to detail and the pursuit of elegance in every aspect. Whether for new or pre-owned aircraft, the studio carefully conceives and elegantly drafts each detail, working with the finest artisans to bring those ideas to life. This commitment to craftsmanship and creativity is evident in the Gulfstream G450 project, where the design showcases a blend of innovation, sophistication and personalised luxury.
