Surf Air Europe selects FlairJet to manage Phenom 300 aircraft

FlairJet Ltd., whose parent company is Flexjet Ltd, has recently signed an agreement to manage the first Phenom 300 aircraft on behalf of Surf Air Europe Ltd, the company said.

The first Surf Air Phenom 300 will go into service next month. The aircraft will be maintained by the manufacturer, Embraer Executive Jets, and will be operated by FlairJet, the first operator to fly the Phenom 300 in Europe.

FlairJet and Flexjet manage a broad range of private jets both operated under the FlairJet AOC or through Part-NCC operations. FlairJet has managed the acquisition, acceptance, and delivery of over 25 Embraer aircraft.

In the seven years since it was established in 2009, FlairJet has onboarded 13 Embraer Phenoms into its fleet and has pioneered commercial operations with both the Phenom 300 and 100 in Europe.

Surf Air simplifies flying by providing limitless flights in the Surf Air network for a monthly fee. The airline services California, Las Vegas, and European destinations. It provides exclusive service on executive aircraft to and from convenient airports in the US and Europe including London, Zurich, and Cannes with service to additional locations to follow.

Embraer is an executive jet manufacturer. Its portfolio consists of the entry-level Phenom 100E and the Phenom 300 light jet, the Legacy 500 midsize and Legacy 450 mid-light, the super-midsize Legacy 600 and large Legacy 650 and the ultra-large Lineage 1000E.

FlairJet, founded in 2009, is a UK-based aircraft management company. In August 2016 the company was acquired by Flexjet, US-based shared-aircraft-ownership provider.
