JetBrokers closes five sales in January 2015


JetBrokers closed five aircraft transactions in January 2015. The aircraft brokerage sold a Beechjet 400A, an Astra, a Learjet 45, a Cessna Citation XLS+ and a Bombardier Challenger 604.

The company have 22 aircraft for sale, about half of the number that is typically available from the JetBrokers team.

Tom Crowell Jr, president of JetBrokers, said: “Sales over recent months have been very encouraging, but it does create further challenges in finding other sale opportunities to replace those that have sold. We have numerous discussions underway with prospective sellers but, understandably, it’s not unusual for the decision process to take weeks or months. We have a few other deals pending, so I’m hopeful that February will continue to be equally encouraging.”

JetBrokers recently changed their loga and consolidated the JetBrokers Europe franchise into their operations.

“There has been a positive response to these changes and it’s good to have a single identity for people to relate to, wherever they are in the world,” added Crowell.

Tim Barber, regional managing director of JetBrokers, said: “This is by far the best start to a year that we have seen since we launched JetBrokers Europe at the end of 2009. With the single identity of JetBrokers now established, our ability to support owners and buyers across the globe is undoubtedly enhanced.

“We’ve been used to having a combined inventory in excess of 40, so it is a little odd to see it at its current level, but that will hopefully offer further reassurance to our prospective clients that they will have even more of our sizeable resources at their disposal.”
