banks on 60XRs
Spain’s Taxijet is planning to build a
fleet of 30 Eclipse 500s as it finalises
simultaneous plans to work with
European partners to offer a Europe-
wide network fleet of 150 aircraft. “We
expect European certification of the
Eclipse 500 to come this year and plan
to begin commercial operations in
April 2009,” says ceo Conor Neill.
He adds: “The world faces an
uncertain next six to 18 months. The
sub-prime banking crisis will have
flow-through effects to all parts of the
global economy as loans become
harder and harder to get.”
But Neill, a professor at IESE
business school, a leading MBA
institution, adds: “We believe that
governments are taking the
appropriate action to bring liquidity
back to world economies and allow
good businesses the access to credit
which they require to invest and grow.
We will work hard on developing
strong, safe, robust operational
processes and will be building a
solid team over the next year, while
positioning ourselves for strong
growth as economic confidence
returns during 2010.”
Taxijet’s target is to operate its own
fleet of 30 aircraft in Spain by 2013. Lisbon-headquartered Jet Republic has ordered 110 Learjet 60XRs to provide the mainstay of a private jet club. Key members of the Jet Republic management team include (left to
