Jet Edge International Is Adding 27 New Aircraft to Its AdvantEdge Fleet


After a record-setting first half of 2021, Jet Edge is excited to announce the addition of 27 state-of-the-art aircraft to its AdvantEdge fleet. The Bombardier Challenger 300/350 (16) and Gulfstream G450 (11) aircraft will all be flying by the end of the year, bringing the total available aircraft for charter in the AdvantEdge fleet to 74 (38 Challengers and 36 Gulfstreams). The new additions will have an average age of less than 10 years old and will include new paint, interiors, and upgraded state-of-the-art cabin technology systems. The cabins will include Gogo 4G streaming Wi-Fi, Bluetooth controlled sound systems, updated USB charging ports, HD Airshow, in-flight entertainment options, and more. The new deliveries started in earnest in July of this year and will be delivered in their entirety by December 15th.

At a time when the industry is experiencing historically high demand and record low inventory, Jet Edge is thrilled to provide customers with these highly sought after, industry-leading aircraft types.

“Mid 2020, our senior teams saw availability as a gating item post-vaccine roll out and knew we had to get ahead of the curve via our new AdvantEdge program, which sold out within 90 days of announcing the new product,” comments Jet Edge International CEO Bill Papariella. “As many private jet travellers face waitlists, halted fractional sales, and phased out aircraft product offerings, Jet Edge is providing access to these state-of-the-art Challenger and Gulfstream models before year-end.”

On the heels on of its recent KKR transaction, Jet Edge is squarely focused on positioning the company to take advantage of unprecedented marketplace conditions with its revolutionary AdvantEdge simplified ownership model and Reserve charter product, which provides extraordinary access to the fleet.

“The AdvantEdge and Charter Reserve program response has been a game-changer for our company and our clients. We have not only strengthened our position in the market, but solidified relationships with our OEM partners along the way to ensure best in class operations,” Jet Edge International CEO Bill Papariella continues. “This isn’t just about high demand and adding planes to the fleet. These fleet additions truly drive value across our platform for all stakeholders in a meaningful way.”

$150M Investment for Jet Edge International

Jet Edge International, a global leader in full-service private aviation responsible for operating the largest fleet of managed Challenger and Gulfstream aircraft in the United States, and KKR, a leading global investment firm, today announced that credit funds and accounts managed by KKR have agreed to provide a credit facility of up to $150 million to Jet Edge. The funding will be used to support the acceleration of the Company’s broad infrastructure, digital initiatives, Reserve membership, and comes as Jet Edge rolls out its AdvantEdge charter management platform nationwide. Aimed at substantially optimizing the inefficiencies found in the private aviation industry’s existing ownership and charter management procedures, AdvantEdge simplifies and enhances the financial predictability for whole ownership of large cabin and super-midsize aircraft with an innovative time-based model.

“Jet Edge is thrilled to partner with KKR as we continue to strengthen and grow our platform,” said Bill Papariella, CEO of Jet Edge. “As part of our continued focus on delivering innovative solutions to our clients, we are excited to officially unveil the Jet Edge AdvantEdge program – the first whole aircraft ownership solution that is a true alternative to both fractional ownership and the antiquated traditional aircraft management model. Never before has the plane ownership experience been as forecastable and predictable as it is with AdvantEdge.”

The centrepiece of the AdvantEdge program is its holistic approach to delivering reliable charter revenue, scheduling, and fixed costs, which provides significant benefits to aircraft owners and charter clients alike. The AdvantEdge program works with aircraft owners to schedule out predetermined, dedicated blocks of charter hours in three distinct tiers for each enrolled aircraft, resulting in predictable revenues and schedules for the first time in the industry, as well as significant improvements to utilization performance.
