SwiftJet, Canada's New Charter Service
A new Canadian company, SwiftJet is planning affordable, executive chartered travel for Canada. The company plans to acquire up to 15 Diamond D-Jets, from Diamond Aircraft. With the purchase of all 15 aircrafts, SwiftJet will become the largest operator of D-Jets in Canada and the first executive charter launch customer in Canada to take delivery of the aircraft. Commercial pilot Bassam Al-Sarraj is the President of SwiftJet and says the D-Jets will offer small to mid-sized businesses a way to expand their markets outside the traditional airline air corridors. Initial deliveries to SwiftJet are planned for 2010. SwiftJet currently flies the Falcon 20. The company offers the SwiftJet Jet card which can be purchased in blocks of 25, 50 and 100 hours.
