Airshare Challenger 350

The addition of the Challenger 350s will double Airshare’s fractional fleet as it eyes expansion into the Northeastern U.S.

Phenom light jet operator Airshare moves into the super-midsize aircraft category, announcing a firm order for three Bombardier Challenger 350s. It adds options for 17 more, meaning it will add as many as 20 new aircraft. Based on Conklin & De Decker’s estimated price of $27 million per unit, the deal is worth $540 million. Airshare currently operates a fleet of 20 Phenom 300s and 100s for its fractional share and jet card program. Additionally, it manages 26 aircraft for owners.
