AirX expands its fleet of private jets

The AirX fleet is now composed of 3 Legacy 600, 4 Challenger 850, 2 Cessna Citation X and 3 Boeing 737-500 aircraft.

Malta-based executive air charter company AirX is expanding its fleet of aircraft after recently concluding a transaction to add a third Boeing 737 to its fleet, bringing the total number of aircraft to 12. AirX is also adding more of its aircraft to the Maltese aviation register.

The AirX fleet is now composed of 3 Legacy 600, 4 Challenger 850, 2 Cessna Citation X and 3 Boeing 737-500 aircraft. 75% of the company’s fleet is registered on the Maltese aviation register.

The third Boeing 737 to join the AirX fleet is expected to enter service by the end of this year after undergoing a total cabin refit. It will also be registered on the Maltese aviation register. The aircraft will be configured to take 105 normal passenger seats or 70 business class seats and it already has over 600 hours of flying time secured for 2016.

“AirX is a living testimonial of Malta’s growing success as an aviation hub. Our fleet expansion program is well underway, growing our fleet from 5 to 12 aircraft in one year. Aircraft registration is important for Malta to establish itself as a key player in aviation and creates employment opportunities for Maltese aviation professionals. We are proud to support Malta on the way to becoming a recognized global player in aviation” said John B. Matthews, Chairman of AirX.

AirX relocated its Head Office and operations to Malta in March 2013 and moved fast from a fresh start-up to a recognized private air charter provider in Europe, now employing over 130 personnel.

AirX provides luxury private charter flights across Europe to several clients who most regularly include A-list celebrities, ranging from Hollywood movie stars to pop artists, members of royal families, top corporate executives, sport teams and government ministers. The company obtained its Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) from the Civil Aviation Directorate and Transport Malta in May 2013.
