0

European fractional ownership operator Jetfly and its clients have donated more than 200 hours of flight time to transport frontline care professionals and medical equipment around Europe.

Jetfly, which operates one of the largest private aviation fleets in Europe, is making its aircraft available free of charge as part of an initiative launched with the association Aviation Sans Frontières in France.

Jetfly operates 50 Pilatus PC-12 and PC-24s on behalf of 250 co-owners. The company employs 300 staff in Europe including 150 pilots.

The company called upon its client base to donate flight hours in order to save lives. After an extremely positive response, more than 200 flight hours have been collected, said Jetfly.

Cédric Lescop, CEO of Jetfly said, “With the unique collaboration of our customers, we are proud to support the regions that need extra help to transport doctors, nurses and medical equipment like ventilators, protective masks, gloves, medical suits and gels.”

About fifteen flights have already been operated free of charge and many more are currently being
prepared.
