Yesterday Nextant announced the sale of a second 400XT to Czech operator Time Air, which is based at Prague-Ruzyne. Time Air was the first European customer for the Nextant-remanufactured Hawker 400. According to Martin Prazsky, managing director of Time Air, “The Nextant 400XT has been an incredibly popular addition to our charter service offering due to its low operating cost and outstanding dispatch reliability. We’ve flown 600 hours in the first nine months, and demand for the aircraft increases month over month.”

In taking a second aircraft Time Air also becomes the first European fleet operator of the Nextant. “We had very high expectations and the aircraft has met them,” remarked Prazsky. “It’s the perfect jet for the charter market. In addition, the Nextant customer support has been superb.”

Just before the Time Air announcement was made Nextant also announced that Jet Aviation at Geneva has been selected to provide maintenance and servicing support for the 400XT and XTi.
