The culmination of 2022 was nothing short of an incredible success for Jet Aviation Charter team as it successfully added the first BBJ2 into its fleet and is the first of its kind on company'sair carrier certificate. The state-of-the-art business jet saw its first charter flight with customers at the end of 2022 and the team excited for it to provide lift for many more in the new year.

Victoria Reina-Duffy, Jet Aviation Charter Sales Director, commented: “Jet Aviation is delighted to operate the first BBJ2 available to the Part 135 charter market. This exemplary airplane is VVIP configured and provides customers the utmost experience in comfort and style. Amenities include Wi-Fi, a fully enclosed stateroom with a full bathroom and shower, a minimum of two cabin attendants for an unparalleled inflight experience, and can carry up to 17 passengers. This really is a charter experience unlike anything in the market.”

The addition of this Boeing Business Jet was a complete team effort. With such a large and unique aircraft, it was a more challenging task to get it onto our Part 135 certificate. The Conformity Team, Flight Services Team, and Marketing Team truly came together and successfully achieved wheels up prior to the conclusion of 2022.

Taylor Burns, Senior Conformity Project Manager, said: “We worked with Basel to complete a prebuy inspection on a Bermuda registered BBJ2. We generated the gameplan for USA import as well as work scope for FAA P135 commercial operations. Conformity required validation of 150+ Airworthiness Directives, as well as 75 modifications. We also worked with our local FAA office to review an aircraft model type they were not familiar with, eventually placing the aircraft on the Part 135 certificate.”

Proving once again the magnitude of what can be accomplished when coming together, Jet Aviation is excited for all the lift this remarkable aircraft will provide to customers of the future.
