Jota Aviation based at London Southend Airport has added another King Air to its expanding fleet.

The King Air C90 GTX, (registered G-MOSJ), was previously operated by Jota for three years from 2011-2014.

Built in late 2010, the aircraft offers a 1,300 nm range and is configured for six seats in a Club 4, plus two arrangement.

The aircraft is the company’s fifth King Air and Jota Aviation has just succeeded in gaining approval to widen its AOC coverage for its entire fleet, including its BAe 146-200 jet – to include the Middle East, Africa, Iceland, Russia and the Azores.

Meanwhile the BAe 146-200, which joined Jota’s fleet in October 2014, is now available for charter, sporting 50 executive seats.

Mike Sessions, commercial manager of Jota Aviation says:  “We are confident we will get a lot of demand for this version, especially with the 146’s short runway performance too. We will also make available first class hot or cold VIP catering on china with appropriate metal cutlery and glasses. We have already flown a number of sports teams – rugby, football as well as film production teams this summer, in addition to our sub charter ACMI airline work for major UK and European airlines.”

Jota Aviation is the largest operator of the smaller King Air 90 family in Europe, the aircraft seating up to six passengers with the larger King Air 200 seating up to eight passengers, plus a dedicated cargo aircraft with a large double cargo door.
