Merges Fly Alpha´s fleet into FAI´s AOC

FAI Aviation Group Holding has decided to discontinue the AOC of one of its charter businesses, Fly Alpha. FAI will transfer its Premier 1A and King Air 350 aircraft onto FAI´s AOC.

FAI´s Chairman Siegfried Axtmann commented: ¨Economically, it makes no sense to operate two German AOCs in parallel, therefore we have taken the decision to give up the second AOC and enrol Fly Alpha´s aircraft into FAI´s fleet which now totals to 25 business jets and one turboprop.̏
