The Challenger 604 is based at Milan Linate and gives TopJet access to the longer range market sector. The company has also taken its Italian flair to the US and has been arranging flights all over the country since then.

Italy-based Topjet Executive has acquired a Challenger 604, bringing its fleet total to 10 business jets and one helicopter. This heavy jet addition is based in Milan Linate and sales manager Marco Dulitchi says: “The CL604 is a commercially managed aircraft and a valuable addition to our versatile fleet. It enables access to new routes, enhances flight efficiency and extends our range. This allows us to meet various customer needs and offer a more comprehensive service spectrum, catering to luxury travel needs both within Italy and abroad.

“The super midsize jet can comfortably accommodate 10 passengers in two separate seating areas. Offering a range of nearly 7,500km, it can perform trips such as Milan to Dubai, Milan to Canary Islands or flights to Central Africa, with reduced flight times thanks to its high maximum cruising speed.”

The company’s focus is on expanding its business horizons. “Thanks to our new rotary wing sales manager Alina Skoda, we are proud to be one of the very few companies capable of operating point-to-point air services using both private jets and helicopters,” he adds. “With her 15 years of experience in the helicopter sector, she will bring a wealth of industry expertise that will help strengthen and grow our services.”

One year ago, the company introduced what it calls its signature Italian sophistication to American skies.

Claudio Magnani, head of operations and sales in Europe, says: “Opening our Miami office at Fontainebleau Aviation, one of the most prestigious FBOs at the Opa-Locka Executive airport, has been a game-changer. It has allowed us to increase our flight volume and attract local clientele, solidifying our presence in the US.”

The Miami office prides itself on arranging any type of charter, from short island hops to coast-to-coast voyages and transatlantic flights to Europe, and from skiing retreats in Aspen to the F1 Grand Prix in Miami and Las Vegas.

US marketing director Francesca Smith says the company is dedicated to elevating the standard of service in an industry often marred by lacklustre offerings: “In an industry focused on transactions rather than relationships, TopJet is committed to providing a truly personalised, reliable and luxurious experience.”

Sales executive Harrison Schamach adds: “Business has rapidly picked up since our expansion into the US market, and we have acquired our first aircraft in the US, which will allow us to expand our operations.”
