Surf Air pulls the plug on Europe; plans to focus on U.S. operation

The Netflix style all-you-can-fly by-the-seat private flight membership seller had launched flights in Europe last year

 

Surf Air last week has retreated from Europe. It comes less than 18 months after it launched flights with a single Embraer Phenom 300 and the promise of additional aircraft, including the Pilatus PC-12. As part of the launch, Surf Air had recruited the former chairman of the British Airways – American Airlines transatlantic alliance Simon Talling-Smith and had enlisted Flairjet, the U.K. operator owned by Directional Aviation to operate its Phenom.

As previously reported, Surf Air Europe last week launched on June 23rd with a single route from London’s Luton Airport to Ibiza, Spain. London to Cannes starts on July 4, and after that Zurich looks like it will join the network in September. The U.S. by the seat private aviation membership provider has been operating since 2013. This demonstrates Surf Air’s confidence in expanding this service into Europe.
