Three Boeing 737-500s undergoing reconfiguration for KlasJet


European operator KlasJet recently acquired three Boeing 737-500s to add to its fleet, which currently comprises a Hawker 800XP, Bombardier CRJ200, Bombardier Challenger 850, and a Boeing 737-500. Each of the new Boeing 737-500s is being customized to meet the needs of KlasJet’s customers.

KlasJet is particularly experienced in the sports sector, with clients including national teams and top-tier soccer teams. Its aircraft also support the show business industry, diplomatic flights, VIP flights and tours and business.

The first aircraft will have 52 business seats trimmed in red and black leather, and is due to begin operations in the first quarter of 2019. The second aircraft will have an interior capable of transformation from 68 to 102 business seats, so it can be adjusted for large VIP groups.

The aircraft is already at KlasJet’s hangar in Lithuania and should start operations no later than the second quarter of 2019. The third aircraft, following in the second half of 2019, will have a “refined economy” interior with 120 seats.

The project is being delivered by AviaAM Leasing, the sister company of Avia Solutions Group. The subsidiaries of the group – Jet Maintenance Solutions and FL Technics – are working together to prepare the aircraft.

KlasJet also plans to acquire four more Boeing aircraft in 2019.

“Exceeding customer expectations and providing top-notch services is at the core of our business,” said Dovydas Jurgelevicius, CEO at KlasJet.

“To succeed we need to focus on our customer’s experience. Their feedback guides us to further tailor our services, and our recent expansion is no exception. Insights towards potential business opportunities in new identified segments let us make the decision and double the fleet. With new capabilities, our team will be able to provide the best solutions to a wider range of customers worldwide.”
