KlasJet fleet extends with three new Boeing 737-500s

KlasJet has extended its fleet with three Boeing 737-500s, enabling the company to further expand bespoke services and experiences, tailored to sophisticated customer needs. Expansion is set to continue in 2019 with plans to purchase four more Boeing aircraft.

All new Boeing 737-500s are being prepared for operations. Each 737 is being reconfigured according to KlasJet customer requirements, with custom-designs, including tailored technical specifications. KlasJet is oriented to a ‘special customers segments’ and groups such as sports clubs, show business, diplomatic flights, VIP flights, VIP tours, and M.I.C.E.

Dovydas Jurgelevicius, CEO at KlasJet, said: “Customer feedback guides us to further tailor our services, and our recent expansion is no exception. Insights towards potential business opportunities in new identified segments let us make the decision and double the fleet. With new capabilities, our team will be able to provide the best solutions to a wider range of customers worldwide.”

The first aircraft will have 52 red-leather business class seats, and it will be operational in the first quarter of 2019. The second aircraft is blue by design and will have an interchangeable interior that can transform from 68 to 102 business class seats. This aircraft is already being maintained at the KlasJet hangar in Lithuania and will be operational by the second quarter of the year. The last aircraft, a special 737 with refined economy interior of 120 seats, in the 2nd half of 2019.

This fleet expansion, alongside aircraft customization, requires dependable partners and sophisticated planning. The project is being delivered by the sister company of Avia Solutions Group—AviaAM Leasing. Subsidiaries of the group—Jet Maintenance Solutions and FL Technics—are working together to prepare the aircraft for successful operations.

Growing the fleet is one of KlasJet’s strategic goals in 2019. The fleet already operates four aircraft: Hawker 800XP, Bombardier CRJ200, Bombardier Challenger 850, and Boeing 737-500. This fleet has been the top choice among customers in Europe and the Middle East since 2013.
