NetJets expanding European fleet with Challenger 650


NetJets has added a Bombardier Challenger 650 aircraft to its European fleet. The firm said the expansion “comes off the heels of unprecedented demand, for which interest does not appear to be slowing”.

Christian Luwisch, executive director, NetJets Europe, says: “We’re thrilled to be expanding our European fleet, adding one of our most requested aircraft to our growing portfolio. For the past 57 years, NetJets has prioritised offering the best possible experience to our owners and this addition showcases our commitment to ensuring we deliver on that promise.”

NetJets also recently announced a $1.2bn investment with Embraer for the purchase of 100 Phenom 300E aircraft, the global fleet now has more than 760 aircraft.

The newest addition to the European fleet seats up to 11 passengers and offers Ka-band high-speed satellite WiFi and wireless entertainment.

The delivery of the Challenger 650 will take place in the course of 2022 and NetJets will host a roadshow across Europe to welcome the aircraft to the wider fleet.
