Switzerland's Jet Aviation is to add a Falcon 900EX and a G-550 to its managed fleet. The company's Martin Bernegger said at EBACE that the 900EX, configured for 13 passengers, will be based in Zurich while the G-550, designed for 14 passengers, will be stationed in Zurich and Tokyo.

"The G-550 will enable us to offer long range services to charter customers both in Europe and in Asia," says Bernegger. "The Falcon 900EX is a much sought after aircraft for charter to destinations in the U.S., Africa and the Middle East." Bernegger says the aircraft are due to come into service in July.

Separately NetJets Europe announced at EBACE that it had increased its order of Falcon 2000LX to 30 with 20 new orders. The NetJets Europe's fleet will expand to include the Falcon 2000, Falcon 2000EX, Falcon 900B and Falcon 900EX.

The 30 new aircraft will be delivered over the next eight years, with the first expected in September 2008. Booth says: "With its range and increased fuel efficiency, we know this aircraft will be a big hit."
