German operator FAI rent-a-jet has replaced its penultimate Learjet 55 with a Learjet 60 acquired by FAI in Bulgaria. The departing Learjet 55 will be used in the USA as an air ambulance. The company also replaced its last Learjet 35A with a Learjet 60 in 2017.
“I am delighted to see that our fleet replacement and harmonization project is on track,” said Siegfried Axtmann, chairman of FAI rent-a-jet. “We anticipate outsourcing our last Learjet 55 by mid-2018 as scheduled, completing our transition to a more modern Learjet fleet comprised entirely of Learjet 60 aircraft.”
The FAI in-service fleet now includes 11 Learjet 60s, as well as four Global Express aircraft, five Challenger 604s, a Premier 1A and a King Air 350. After its cabin has been upgraded, an A319CJ will be available for lease and ad-hoc charter from mid-2018.
