Marshall Aviation Services adds an Embraer Phenom 300 to its managed charter fleet
Marshall Aviation Services management charter business, FlairJet is pleased to welcome a brand new Embraer Phenom 300 aircraft to its managed fleet. The aircraft (G-CRBN) will be available for charter immediately and will initially be based at Florence Airport, Peretola, before moving to Ibiza in the Balearic Islands for the summer.
FlairJet, the management charter business of Marshall Aviation Services, pioneered commercial operations with both the Phenom 300 and 100 in Europe and is delighted to be enhancing its current managed fleet with this popular charter aircraft. The Phenom 300 joins a fleet of two Embraer Phenom 100s, a Beechcraft King Air 350i, a Cessna Citation Mustang, a Cessna Citation Bravo and Citation XLS. With its bases at London Oxford, Cambridge, London Luton and now Birmingham Airports – the latter home to its new Cessna Citation Mustang, Marshall Aviation Services has added five aircraft to its fleet over the past 19 months, averaging approximately one aircraft every four months.
The high performance Phenom 300 is also the only one of its kind in nine-seat layout to be available for commercial charter in Europe. It features a BMW Design interior, offering stylish and flexible seating with a two-seater divan in the forward portion of the cabin, one four-place club seating arrangement and two individual seats. Additional Phenom 300 features include the largest windows in its class and a large baggage hold, ideally suited for skis and golf clubs.
The professionalism, reputation and technical knowledge on the type were instrumental in winning the owner’s confidence to manage the aircraft. Marshall Aviation Services also has the endorsement of Embraer Aircraft, having managed the acceptance and delivery of 24 Embraer business aircraft models to date.
David Fletcher, Managing Director of FlairJet commented: “We are very pleased to introduce this new Embraer Phenom 300 to our fleet. We are one the most experienced operators of Phenom aircraft in Europe and our crew and support staff’s knowledge of the Embraer portfolio are unparalleled. In our experience, this aircraft –- is going to be popular among business and leisure clients looking for convenience, flexibility and privacy. It is very fuel efficient, has a range of nearly 2,000 nm reaching destinations such as Istanbul, Rome and Moscow.”
“The recent addition of our new Fixed Base Operation (FBO) at Birmingham Airport, UK and the growth of our management charter fleet this year demonstrate our commitment to build the capabilities of Marshall Aviation Services”.
