FlairJet Ltd. (FlairJet), the UK-based aircraft management company, who’s parent company is Flexjet Ltd, is pleased to announce a recently signed agreement to manage the first Phenom 300 aircraft on behalf of Surf Air Europe Ltd.

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 very first operator to fly the Phenom 300 in Europe.

“I am delighted to take the first step in what will be a long and prosperous relationship as both companies grow our offerings internationally,” said Flexjet Ltd, CEO, Ray Jones. “I see this as a very synergetic relationship with clear mutual benefits.”

Choosing FlairJet to manage the aircraft made good business sense, as FlairJet is renowned for its technical expertise in the Embraer Phenom portfolio. Flairjet and Flexjet Ltd 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. 

“I am excited to forge this partnership with FlairJet, given that our business objectives to further expand European operations on both fronts align significantly,” said Simon Talling-Smith, CEO, of Surf Air Europe Ltd. “This is an important move as we work to expand our footprint globally and bring our successful and innovative product from the US to new members in the growing intra-European business travel market."

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. The Phenom 300 has been the most delivered business jet in the world for last four consecutive years.

“We have enjoyed a long relationship with FlairJet and Flexjet Ltd that embodies some of our most popular products. We have jointly pioneered many initiatives together that continue to reshape the market,” said Peter Griffith, Senior Vice President Sales, Europe, CIS & Africa at Embraer Executive Jets.
