Jet Aviation has secured its air operator’s certificate (AOC) for Malta, leading to the launch of a new flight operation. Malta will join the company’s existing regional AOC operations in Zurich, Switzerland, and Cologne, Germany.
A Boeing BBJ 737-700 is already operating at Jet Aviation’s Malta location, with a Legacy 600 jet set to be added to its offering in the coming weeks. Managed by Jet Aviation and available for charter services, the long-range BBJ1 accommodates 19 passengers. The VIP-configured aircraft is based in Europe and has a range of 9,260km (5,753 miles), enabling it to travel as far afield as the Bahamas, Beijing, Mauritius or New York.
Jürg Reuthinger, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s aircraft management and charter operations in EMEA and Asia, said, “Our new flight operation in Malta is a terrific complement to our Swiss and German operations. The additional AOC in the European Union allows aircraft owners and operators more flexibility in their choice of registrations and operation.
“Charter customers, of course, greatly appreciate a wide range of aircraft to meet their varying jet transportation needs. The Boeing BBJ that’s available for charter is an excellent choice for worldwide business and leisure travel.”
