Hawker Beechcraft Services Announces Inaugural Hawker 800XPR Upgrade Customer

Denmark Charter Operator JoinJet Boasts The Greenest 800XP In The World

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.

"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 (EGNR).
