Planet 9, the Van Nuys, California-based private charter operator and aircraft management company, added a Bombardier Global Express BD-700 (N551SW) to its managed fleet at the end of December, the third aircraft to go onto its Part 135 Air Operator’s Certificate since the pandemic took hold in March 2020.
Two more aircraft – a Global Express and Dassault Falcon 7X – are currently being readied to join the managed fleet by the end of February. Both will be available for charter, boosting the Planet 9 family of owned and managed aircraft to 14.
Planet 9, which has operations bases in Teterboro, New York, London and Lisbon, has seen more clients turn to the safe cabin environment of its private aircraft to keep their families protected during the pandemic. Much of its flying over the recent holiday season has been to the Caribbean Islands, especially The Bahamas and Turks & Caicos – from both U.S. and European airports.Email Post to a Friend
