Bombardier’s Skyjet block-charter program has recruited its first French operator with the arrival of a new Learjet 45 at the Paris Le Bourget headquarters of Aero Services. During a February 1 ceremony at the airport, the Canadian airframer also announced that it is negotiating to appoint Aero Services’ Portuguese parent company, Omni, its exclusive Learjet sales representative for both France and Portugal.

Skyjet’s European fleet now consists of around 70 Bombardier business aircraft, including the Learjets 31A, 45 and 60, various Challengers and the Global Express. These are operated by 17 executive charter firms, most of which are based in Germany
and the UK.
