Isle-Fly brings second King Air to the Channel Islands

Friday 02 September 2022

A private air charter company has acquired its second King Air, which will be based in Jersey and East Midlands, providing coverage to the Channel Islands, UK and Europe.

Isle Fly's acquisition comes as it it experiencing high demand and opportunities for further growth.

It comes in addition to a recently acquired King Air (G-REXA), selected for its range, premium design and performance. The King Air’s interior has soft LED lighting, large luggage capacity, USB charging ports and a quiet cabin that allows travellers to work, socialise or rest in comfort while onboard. 

Captains Paul Sabin and George Romeril collected the King Air from the Beechcraft Factory in Wichita, USA in late May, becoming the first European company to charter the model.They flew the Blue Spruce route via Montreal, Goose Bay, Narsarsuaq, Reykjavik, Isle of Man and East Midlands airport; a total distance of just over 5,000 miles that took the pilots just 18 flying hours.

“The experience was incredible," Mr Romeril said. "Completing the planning and operational tasks, combined with flying such a beautiful route, was an amazing opportunity, and I learnt a huge amount from Paul. It’s an experience I couldn’t have got at any other company.”

Commercial director Colin Wright added: “This is a great moment for the company and we’re looking forward to meeting visitors and prospective customers at ACE. We are thankful to our loyal customer base and incredibly proud of our hard-working team, who have been exceptionally busy and high-performing during our growth journey.”
