Bombardier Aerospace today announced that European Skytime of Gloucestershire, UK has placed firm orders for two high-performance Learjet business jets, one Learjet 40 XR jet and one Learjet 45 XR jet.
European Skytime runs a leading European block charter programme, utilising numerous Bombardier business jets including Learjet 31, Learjet 45, Learjet 60 and Challenger 604 aircraft. The new Learjet aircraft, scheduled for delivery over the next 2 years, will be based in London.
"We are building for the future with plans to offer the entire Learjet aircraft product line. With their proven fuel efficiency, outstanding speed and range combination, and spacious, comfortable cabins, the Learjet aircraft family is the right fit for our business model," said Steve Westlake, managing director, European Skytime. "Our company is committed to offering our passengers the best products and services, that not only surpass their charter needs, but also minimize undesirable effects on the environment."
With its commitment to completely offset the emissions generated by its own operations, European Skytime has become the world's first CarbonNeutral® air charter broker. The innovative charter company is the first to offer its clients the ability to offset the CO2 generated by their private jet, helicopter or airliner flight.
"We are thrilled with this tremendous vote of confidence by European Skytime in Bombardier products," said Bob Horner, vice-president, international sales, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Our current Learjet aircraft in-production is optimally suited for European charter operations. This impressive trio of aircraft have been a significant factor in our continued growth in Europe."
Already benefiting from a long standing relationship with Bombardier Skyjet International, European Skytime is a key strategic operating partner in meeting customer demand for greater access to charter on Learjet aircraft in the region.
"Our relationship with European Skytime has grown steadily as their business evolved from broker to owner. It is a testament to the strength of the Learjet product line, Bombardier's total service solution and the Skyjet International business model," said Judith Moreton, managing director, Bombardier Skyjet International.
