Zetta Jet to Expand Fleet with Four Bombardier Challenger 650 Business Jets

Zetta Jet, a Singapore-based charter operator, is to expand its fleet with four Challenger 650 jets.

The fleet expansion follows the signing of a purchase agreement between China's Minsheng Financial Leasing and Bombardier Business Aircraft, as well as the signature of a strategic agreement on the co-operation in aircraft leasing between Minsheng Financial Leasing and Zetta Jet.

The aircraft order is valued at approximately US$129.4 million based on 2016 list prices.

"This agreement strengthens our position in the Asian aviation market by diversifying our fleet to include Challenger business jets and enhancing our offering to our elite clientele," said Geoffery Cassidy, Managing Director, Zetta Jet. "With its breakthrough design attributes and unique expressions of comfort, control and connectivity, the Challenger 650 aircraft and its widest-in-class cabin create the ultimate inflight experience for Zetta Jet's ultra VIP travellers."

The four Challenger 650 business jets will operate out of the Zetta Jet's North American hub in Los Angeles and cater to the increasing demand for its luxury travel services between North America and the South East Asia region.
