After doubling its fleet over the past five years, Nicholas Air says it plans more measured expansion this year
Don’t look for Nicholas Air to make a billion-dollar order with deliveries stretching over six or seven years. The Oxford, Mississippi-based private jet operator and management company will follow up its addition of two new Phenom 300 light jets added directly from Embraer last year. However, it expects to buy for near term needs, head of marketing Peder Von Harten tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.
The private jet operator is investing $21 million by acquiring two of the best-selling Embraer light jets
In the most recent sign that demand for private flights is bouncing back, Nicholas Air says it is adding two new from manufacturer Embraer Phenom 300Es to its fleet.
The company says the move is based on current and future demand. Flight hours for this month are already at 120% of 2019 levels with five days left to go.
