Due to increasing customer demand, NetJets Europe last month negotiated with several business jet manufacturers to accelerate delivery of 39 new aircraft worth some $715 million. The airplanes to be delivered ahead of the original schedule include 10 Cessna Citation XLSes; three Dassault Falcon 2000LXs and two Falcon 7Xs; one Gulfstream G450 and three G550s; and seven Hawker 400XPs, nine Hawker 750s and four Hawker 4000s. (The Hawker 750, Hawker 4000, Falcon 2000LX and Falcon 7X are new fleet types for the company.) This move will boost NetJets Europe’s fleet by 29 percent, to 174 aircraft, eclipsing the division’s 18-percent fleet growth last year.
