Jet Aviation expands US managed fleet and charter offering
Some 200 flight crew have joined the Jet Aviation family so far this year. Its Part 135 certificate is incredibly active, adding new aircraft every month, and it continues to operate any size of aircraft under its Part 125.
Of the 29 aircraft that have joined the management fleet since January 2023, 10 have selected Part 135 Air Carrier certification.

Jet Aviation has added a mix of 29 large and mid-sized aircraft to its US managed fleet since the beginning of the year, ten of which are also available for charter.

“2023 has been a great year as we continue to focus on making aircraft ownership effortless for our customers,” says vice president flight services, Americas David Dalpiaz. “We have worked incredibly hard to ensure we deliver on our promise of seamless service and effortless aircraft management, and also welcomed some 200 flight crew into the Jet Aviation family to support our growing fleet. Our west coast MRO continues to support our US managed fleet, our Part 135 certificate is incredibly active, adding new aircraft every month, and we remain able to operate any size of aircraft, including those with capacity of 20 or more passengers, by continuing our Part 125 certificate.”

The total Jet Aviation US charter fleet numbers some 55 aircraft, including a BBJ2 added to its Part 135 certificate in 2022. This is the first aircraft of its type available to charter on the certificate and can carry up to 17 passengers.

“We are delighted to add a further 10 aircraft to the wide range of options we have available on our charter certificate,” adds vice president of owner and charter services, Americas Leslie Cheshier. “We are dedicated to providing service excellence. These new additions, alongside our existing fleet, ensure we continue to offer customers even more choice and provide a seamless and personalised experience, wherever they would like to go and however they would like to get there.”
