Finland's Jetflite Oy has enhanced the versatility of its charter jet fleet by adding a Cessna Sovereign, a Challenger 850 and a Learjet 60. Juhani Missonen, director sales and marketing, says: "All three aircraft will bring strengths to our fleet. The Sovereign has became a real best seller in its class and represents the latest technology in business aviation. It has a long range, an extremely quiet cabin and excellent load carrying capabilities. The Sovereign can also use shorter runways than any other business jet of the same size and its powerful engines enable it to fly extremely smoothly at high altitude and get passengers to their destinations quickly."
Missonen says the Sovereign has been configured with eight comfortable leather seats, all in a club-style arrangement. There is also a fully equipped galley onboard, along with an enclosed lavatory.
He adds: "The Challenger 850, on the other hand, offers a large and luxurious wide-body cabin for 15 passengers designed to provide superior efficiencies. We regard it as the world's quietest and most environmentally friendly commercial jet aircraft.
"The mid-size Learjet 60, together with Jetflite's Challenger 604/850 and Sovereign fleet provides the ideal combination of business aircraft for a wide variety of clients."
Jetflite Oy, based in Helsinki, is currently operating and managing 10 business jets and is set to add three more by the end of this year. "During the next three years we plan to increase the company's Bombardier fleet with three Global Express 5000s, two Challenger 605s and one 300."
Missonen says the growing number of business aircraft operating in the region will facilitate Jetflite's ambition to be a leading station for AOG support for Bombardier aircraft in Scandinavia and also for Russian markets. "We are the closest geographical option in Europe," he says.
