Arkasair has added a Challenger 3500 business jet to its VIP air taxi and charter fleet, becoming the first customer of the type in Turkey. The company has a longstanding affinity with Bombardier aircraft, having operated a Learjet 60, Challenger 300 and Challenger 604 aircraft. The new Challenger 3500 will replace the company’s Challenger 300, and its addition will bolster charter capabilities with its innovative technology, performance, luxurious cabin and sustainable features.

“At Arkasair we are delighted to be adding a new Challenger 3500 aircraft to our fleet as it perfectly complements the impeccable standards that our VIP air taxi clients have come to demand and expect,” says deputy general manager Martine De Andria. “The Challenger 3500 is truly an impressive aircraft with its luxurious, comfortable cabin and outstanding performance attributes. We are thrilled to be taking delivery of the first one in Turkey.”

“Bombardier is proud that our long-time customer Arkasair has added a Challenger 3500 business jet to its fleet, marking the first delivery of a Challenger 3500 jet in Turkey,” says Emmanuel Bornand, vice president, sales, Europe, Russia, CIS, Middle East and Africa, Bombardier. “Arkasair and Bombardier share a like-minded vision: we strive for excellence and work tirelessly to offer an exceptional experience to our clients. We also continue to look for new opportunities in this important country, offering the very best business aircraft in the skies today.”
