FAI adds Global Express to aircraft management fleet

German Mission Critical operator FAI rent-a-jet GmbH has added a Bombardier Global Express (MSN 9092) to its aircraft management fleet on behalf of a corporate client. This marks FAI’s seventh Global Express and brings its total fleet to 29, including 13 managed aircraft. It is anticipated that the Isle of Man registered aircraft (M-LWSA) will go onto FAI´s AOC at the beginning of 2021 and be available for turnkey charter operations thereafter. In the meantime, it will be NCC-operated by FAI on behalf of the owner.

The Global Express provides comfort for up to 12 passengers and features a well-appointed, tan leather interior complemented by tasteful Makasar-veneer woodwork in a four-seat double club configuration and a three-seat divan. In addition, onboard ultra-high-speed Wi-Fi internet/VoIP is provided by Honeywell´s KA Band accompanied by ultra-modern Collins Venue Cabin Management System including Alto Speakers, Emteq Light Show and Full HD Monitors.

Siegfried Axtmann, FAI Aviation Group Chairman, comments: “We are very pleased to welcome our seventh Global Express which remains one of our most popular aircraft types for long-range missions. Through our management contracts we provide value for aircraft owners who can rely on us to manage all of their aircraft requirements to a high standard and offer charter clients a diverse fleet from which to choose.”
