Barcelona-based Executive Airlines this year has added five business jets to its charter fleet, and it is preparing to add two more. At the start of this year the company positioned a Hawker 700 in Madrid, followed by a pair of Citation CJ1s, a Learjet 45 and a Citation Bravo. One of the CJ1s is now operating out of Palma de Mallorca, and the company is set to open a base at Malaga with a managed Dassault Falcon 100 and a 200. Short- to medium-term expansion plans include further additions to the fleet, and the company is considering types such as the Falcon 2000 and Global Express in the large-cabin class and the Citation Excel as a midsize option.
