David FletcherFlairJet based at London Oxford Airport has taken delivery of the first two Embraer Phenom 300s to be based in Europe. The aircraft will be available for charter from later this month.

The first aircraft arrived at London Oxford on 22 December 2010. Flying the aircraft from Embraer’s Sao Jose dos Campos facility in Brazil via the Caribbean, eastern seaboard of the USA, Goose Bay and Keflavik, were FlairJet CEO, Captain David Fletcher and Captain Gerry Rolls, Flight Operations Director.

The second Phenom 300 arrived on 31 December 2010, this brings the FlairJet Embraer fleet up to five aircraft

The new Phenom 300s will be based at Oxford Airport, joining FlairJet’s existing three Phenom 100s, but one will frequently operate from Cannes Mandelieu in the South of France during the summer.  FlairJet plans to recruit additional pilots and operations staff over the coming months.

“The aircraft have now been added to our AOC and we are especially proud to be the first in Europe to fly the Phenom 300s commercially,” said David Fletcher. “The aircraft is very impressive for both pilot and passenger and is a serious contender to the more established Learjet and Excel aircraft. It also gives us access to airports such as Moscow or Ankara with five or six passengers and perfectly complements the Phenom 100 as it opens up the Algarve, Malaga and Alicante as possible destinations.”
