Vertis adds Falcon 900EX to support growing demand for mid-range charters

Posted 11 September 2019 · Add Comment

Switzerland-headquartered Vertis Aviation has added a Dassault Falcon 900EX to its Vertis Charter Management Programme, VCMP.

 

The latest addition to the virtual roster of aircraft is managed and operated by a UK AOC holder and is now exclusively marketed through Vertis. Based at London Farnborough Airport the Falcon 900EX is available for international charter immediately through any of the Vertis offices in Cape Town, Dubai Boston, and the headquarters in Zug.

The Falcon 900EX is configured to seat up to 12 passengers. Its recently refurbished interior features neutral tones and richly veneered wooden cabinetry, with two cabin seating areas conducive to either working or relaxing, a forward galley and two lavatories. An option for two berths is available for sleeping on longer or overnight flights. Inflight connectivity is delivered by cabin-WiFi, while movies and TV series are available through a DVD and video system offering a variety of entertainment opportunities.

Vertis anticipates the aircraft will be used by a mix of corporate and private charters owing to the versatility of its operating capabilities, cabin comfort and competitive pricing. With a range of up to 4500 nautical miles the aircraft is well suited for trans-continental and trans-Atlantic routes. In addition, equipped with three engines the 900EX is not subject to Extended Twin Operations (ETOPS) regulations, which serves to widen operating parameters and extend charter range. City pairs including London to New York or London to Dubai are all easily within the aircraft capability.

“In addition to the benefits delivered by tri-engine operations, the aircraft is a great option for customers looking for long-range, short-field performance and operational flexibility. We anticipateit will be a popular addition to our portfolio and are already receiving a variety of requests from single charter to block-hour inquiries,” said Vertis Aviation chairman, Julian Burrell. “More recently we have seen an uptick towards mid to large-cabin charter and a decrease in demand for executive airliner charter. In response to these changes we are working with a number of owners and operators to increase our offering in this sector. One of the major benefits of our VCMP business model is the ability to adjust and transform our collection to support market needs, and right now that is moving towards exactly this type of aircraft.The operator chose to work with Vertis as our business model has a proven track of offering professional charter marketing services which genuinely add value for the owner.”
