Charter flying clocks up the hours in less than 2 years
Isle Fly’s latest celebration of reaching 1,000 hours flying on its Beechcraft King Air 250GT series aircraft comes early for the private air charter firm who would usually expect to clock up the hours over a longer period of time. By using new aircraft straight from the factory, they remain an established frontrunner in the aviation industry and expect their busiest summer on record in 2021.
About the King Air
The King Air has a luxurious corporate interior, and is well designed for short flights to UK and European destinations, flying into convenient, local airports. The 6/7 seat 250GT has more powerful engines for higher and longer trips, With a range of 1100 miles at 350mph she can cruise at 35,000ft at speeds comparable to the VLJs (Very Light Jets). The 250GT has six seats plus a discrete lavatory with belted seats. With far more cabin space than the small jets, six people with a generous baggage allowance are easily accommodated in comfort. The extra comfort has been enjoyed on trips not only in the UK, but as far afield as Vagar in the Faroe Islands, Kristiansand in Norway, Innsbruck, Malaga, Sion, Barcelona and the Balearic Islands with many passengers already converted to the extra space and comfort of the King Air over the small jets.
Throughout the global pandemic, Isle Fly has still been in high demand for essential business, repatriation, urgent private travel and covid support flights between the Channel Islands, UK and beyond. They have continued to build their client base and provide uninterrupted service for those people or supplies that have needed to travel during a very difficult period.
Colin Wright, Commercial Director said “We are incredibly proud of our hard-working team and fleet, especially marking this milestone as we begin to see the reduction in travel restrictions being introduced for the Channel Islands, UK & Europe. We have maintained a strong and reliable business throughout the last few difficult months because our clients have still needed access to travel to maintain the local economy and keep their infrastructure running”.
Isle Fly is a private air charter designed to help speed up transit through airports, remove check-in deadlines, difficult airport connections and inconvenient flight times with a dedicated aircraft to the customer with robust Covid safety processes to provide trips with much reduced exposure.
The private air charter service is available for groups of up to eight. Available for charter throughout the Channel Islands, UK and the Continent.
