Jetfly has now taken delivery of its tenth PC-24, finished in an eye-catching Philippe Starck design. It marks another milestone in a successful partnership of over 20 years between Pilatus and the world’s largest PC-24 operator, the Luxembourg-based fractional ownership specialist.
Launched in 1999, Jetfly operates mainly in western Europe. At Jetfly, each customer owns a share in an aircraft, and is thus entitled to use the aircraft whenever he or she wishes.
Cédric Lescop, CEO of Jetfly, said at the handover of the tenth PC-24: “Since adding the first PC-24 to our fleet in 2018, we have seen more and more customers wanting to fly with this amazingly spacious versatile jet. It’s the perfect aircraft for us; our passengers appreciate and love it!”.
The world’s first Super Versatile Jet
“Our customers enjoy the bright, exceptionally large cabin with eight individually adjustable seats. The generous stowage space and cargo door allow for transport of large or bulky items of luggage. Passengers also like the fact that the PC-24 is capable of landing on very short runways. Thanks to this unique capability, they can fly to destinations not open to other jets: we can fly into St. Tropez/La Môle or Gstaad, for example. So, we take our passengers faster and closer to their destination, saving them valuable time. You can only do that in a PC-24”, Lescop adds.
Unabated demand for the PC-24
Ignaz Gretener, VP General Aviation at Pilatus, adds: “Jetfly offers its customers a perfect service. It is remarkable to see how the fleet of PC-24 fractional operators has grown both in the USA and in Europe since the PC-24 was launched in 2018. More and more customers are deciding they cannot do without the ergonomic design, flexibility, and safety of our “Swiss Made” business jet. In addition, its fuel-efficient turbofan engines which can run on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), ensure cost-effective use.”
With 20 years’ experience and over 200,000 flight hours, Luxembourg-based Jetfly is a pioneer in the fractional ownership business. The company employs a total of 430 people, including 190 of its own pilots. With 60 aircraft in total – 48 Pilatus PC-12s and 12 Pilatus PC-24 jets – Jetfly Group operates the largest Pilatus fleet in Europe and serves both business and private aviation needs.
