Athens-based VIP charter operator GainJet Aviation (Stand 1265) announced here at EBACE the recent addition of a Gulfstream G550 to its growing fleet of long-range jets. The fleet includes a VIP Boeing 757 BBJ executive airliner, Bombardier Global Express XRS and a Gulfstream G450, based throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

“We feel the G550 will be a popular aircraft in all three of our markets, so we’ve chosen Athens as a central home base location,” said GainJet CEO James McBride. “The acquisition of such a high- performance aircraft is a major advantage for GainJet, especially considering who our customers are and where in the world they wish to go.”

With a range of 6,750 nm, the G550 has the longest range of any business jet in production. “The G550’s versatility and range, along with GainJet’s excellent VIP service, will allow for a customized journey tailored to the specific passengers’ needs,” said McBride.

Elegantly appointed with dark wood finishings, Gainjet’s G550 has seating for 16 passengers. The company also has a G650 on order, with delivery expected in 2013, and has further plans to expand its long-range fleet, McBride said.
