Los Angeles-based air charter firm Zetta Jet has signed a deal with Bombardier Business Aircraft for up to five Global 6000s worth a potential $318 million at list prices. The agreement, announced today, is a firm order for one Global 6000 and options for four more of the ultra-long-range jets. The airplane will operate out of the company's Asian hub in Singapore and will join Zetta Jet’s fleet of four Globals, which includes a new Global 5000 delivered this quarter.

Zetta Jet, which started operations in August, is an FAA Part 135 charter operator with a scheduling and operations center in Los Angeles, in addition to a network of sales and support offices in New York, London, Harbin, China, and Singapore. Notably, the Part 135 operator has been authorized by the FAA to conduct Polar flights, which can shave off 1.5 hours on a flight between Los Angeles and Moscow.

Geoffery Cassidy, Zetta Jet's managing director, said the Global 6000 was chosen for its comfort and transcontinental range. “With our flagship Global, along with our commitment to world-class service, the Zetta Jet experience sets the benchmark for bespoke private air travel,” he said.
