FAI becomes Germany’s largest business jet operator


FAI Aviation Group has gained four Bombardier aircraft from an undisclosed vendor – two Global Express models and two Learjet 60 aircraft – making it the largest business jet operator in Germany and one of Europe’s largest Bombardier operators.

The Learjet aircraft supports FAI’s air ambulances, flying international medevac missions, while the Global Express models will be introduced into the fleet in the third quarter of 2016 and will fulfill multi-purpose roles offering VIP charters, air ambulance configuration or a combination of the two.

According to Siegfried Axtmann, FAI’s chairman and owner, the company is expecting an operation of 14,000 hours of airtime, which will generate revenues exceeding €85m (US$95m) by the end of 2016.

“It´s a good feeling to be the largest business jet operator in Germany at a time when consolidation seems to be prevalent,” said Axtmann, “With this in mind our primary goal is to continue to be one of the most profitable business jet operators in Europe and so far this year it is looking like we will achieve this again.”
