The UK’s PremiAir group has closed its fixed-wing charter operation as part of a consolidation process. It has already sold one of its three Bombardier Learjet 45s and will likely sell the other two. “We lost a lot of money on the fixed-wing operation and it is questionable whether it was a good idea to get into this business with that type of aircraft,” commented group operations director Christopher Forrest. PremiAir will continue its activities in helicopter charter, management and maintenance, as well as operating a service center for Hawker Beechcraft aircraft at Oxford Airport.
