Denmark Charter Operator JoinJet Boasts The Greenest 800XP In
Hawker Beechcraft Services (HBS) announced JoinJet of Denmark as
the inaugural customer for the Hawker 800XPR upgrade during a
ceremony Monday at the company's Global Customer Support booth at
the NBAA Meeting & Convention in Atlanta. JoinJet is the
charter division of the airline SUN-AIR of Scandinavia A/S.
JoinJet's fleet is state-of-the-art within its class and provides
charter services around the world.
"We are pleased to announce JoinJet as
our launch customer and are confident the Hawker 800XPR upgrade
will be an outstanding performer that will retain its value for
years to come," said Christi Tannahill, Hawker Beechcraft vice
president, Global Customer Support. "The installation of the high
efficiency winglets and the -50R engines make good business sense
and add lasting value."
"We are eager to be the first owner and
operator to upgrade our Hawker 800XP aircraft to the XPR program,"
said Kristoffer Sundberg, General Manager of JoinJet. "The enhanced
reliability and lower operating costs will benefit our charter
service customers. We've been very pleased with the Hawker
Beechcraft products and recently acquired another Hawker 800XP.
This latest addition to our fleet will be receiving the XPR
upgrade. We look forward to marketing it as the greenest 800XP in
the world with its low CO2 footprint."
The Hawker 800XPR offers significant
improvements over the performance and capability of the 800XP, the
industry's best-selling midsize jet. Genuine Hawker winglets and
more powerful, state-of-the-art Honeywell TFE-731-50R turbofan
engines give the 800XPR greater range, better time to climb and
faster cruise speeds. In addition, optional avionics, a newly
stylized interior and XPR customer paint designs are available. The
upgrade is available exclusively through HBS, the company's
factory-owned service center network. JoinJet's upgrade will be
completed at the company's facility in Chester, United Kingdom
