Private air charter operator SaxonAir announces the addition of a Hawker 900XP jet to their aircraft fleet to be based at a new location of Farnborough Airport. This addition brings the Hawker fleet at SaxonAir up to a total of 4, this creates the largest ad-hoc Hawker fleet in the UK and represents continued expansion of the managed aircraft fleet and further growth for SaxonAir.

The Hawkers are still hugely popular aircraft with on-board cabin service as standard setting it apart from competitors such as the XLS+, Latitude and Learjet 75

‘Entering another aircraft into the London market also strengthens SaxonAir’s presence significantly and joins our other London bases at Luton, Stansted and Denham as well as a base at Cannes  and the company’s headquarters in Norwich’  said Chris Mace, Group Commercial Director.

To charter the Hawker 900XP contact SaxonAir’s dedicated charter team by calling +44 (0)1603 518118 or email charter@saxonair.com
