Meanwhile, the FAI Aviation Group its charter businesses Fly Alpha. FAI will transfer its Premier 1A and King Air 350 aircraft onto FAI´s AOC.

FAI´s Chairman Siegfried Axtmann said, ¨Economically, it makes no sense to operate two German AOCs in parallel, therefore we have taken the decision to give up the second AOC and enrol Fly Alpha´s aircraft into FAI´s fleet which now totals to 25 business jets and one turboprop.̏
