German Special Mission and VIP-Charter Operator FAI rent-a-jet AG, part of FAI Aviation Group, has acquired its second Premier 1A jet aircraft (MSN RB-196, D-IVAG) on behalf of a corporate client. It is anticipated that the Premier 1A will enter turnkey charter operations under management contract in June following a carbon fibre style full cabin refurbishment and new exterior designer paint. This latest addition will bring the company’s fleet of jet aircraft to 27.
The Premier 1A light jet provides comfort for up to six passengers and will feature a well-appointed, light grey leather interior in a four-seat club configuration and two aft chairs. In addition, onboard Wi-Fi internet/VoIP will be provided by Gogo´s Aviator 200 system. FAI´s Chairman Siegfried Axtmann, comments: “Having a second Premier 1A under management contract will enable FAI to expand its presence in the light jet charter sector and respond to the current increased demand in this segment. With the operating costs of a Citation Jet and close to the cabin height and speed of a Learjet 60, the Premier 1A offers the perfect tool for entry level jet travel.”
The new addition will further complement FAI´s Nuremberg-based fleet which comprises six Global Express, one Challenger 850, six Challenger 604s, 12 Learjet 60s, together with now two Premier 1A’s plus one King Air 350 turboprop.
