for further strengthening relations with the charter brokers and partners as
well as pursuing new business opportunities in new regions.

David Fletcher, FlairJet chief said: “FlairJet,
profitable inside three years of operations, is ready to embark on a new
chapter now it is firmly established and the appointment of a full time commercial
director who knows the market well, this is an important first step in this
direction. With the existing management FlairJet has always been strong in
operations and technical support disciplines. Carlo’s appointment will be the
catalyst to exploring new commercial opportunities and maximising the use of
our fleet.”

AOC and commencing revenue charter flights in December 2009 initially with two
Embraer Phenom 100s.  This summer FlairJet will take Phenom 300 delivery
