JetClub, the Europe-based sister company to North Carolina-based fractional operator Jet It, has received its air operator certificate (AOC) from the Transport Malta Civil Aviation Directorate. This enables the company to begin operating fractional and charter passenger flights with its HondaJet-centric fleet in the Old Continent.
“Over the past 12 months, we have been building processes that satisfy stringent safety standards of a commercial AOC holder,” said JetClub CEO and founder Vishal Hiremath. “Receiving an AOC is a testament that we as an operator have met and exceeded the high operating standards of the Maltese and EU authorities.”
Besides Europe, JetClub plans to serve fractional owners in Asia, South Asia, and South America. The company was formally launched in March. Like Jet It, it offers a fractional model in which owners purchase a share of a HondaJet in exchange for using the aircraft for a certain number of days, not hours.
