FAI to Harmonise Learjet Fleet by Mid-2018

FAI rent-a-jet AG, Germany's largest business jet operator, has bid farewell to its penultimate Learjet 55 aircraft (D-CAAE), which will now continue life as an air ambulance jet in the USA.

The Learjet 55 has already been replaced by a Learjet 60 aircraft (D-CFAL) recently acquired by FAI in Bulgaria. Earlier this year, FAI's last Learjet 35A aircraft was also replaced by a Learjet 60 (D-CFAT).

Siegfried Axtmann, Chairman of FAI rent-a-jet AG, commented, "I am delighted to see that our fleet replacement and harmonisation project is on track. We anticipate outsourcing our last Learjet 55 by mid-2018 as scheduled, completing our transition to a more modern Learjet fleet comprised entirely of Learjet 60 aircraft."

FAI currently has 11 Learjet 60 aircraft in service, which means it operates the world's largest fleet of that aircraft type. Beside the Learjet 60, the company also operates four Global Express, five Challenger 604 aircraft, one Premier 1A and a King Air 350. The company recently added its largest corporate jet to the fleet, an Airbus A319CJ which will be available for lease and ad hoc charter in mid-2018 following a cabin upgrade.
