Singapore 2008: Eclipse Announces First Fleet Sale In India

10-Plane Eclipse 500 Deal For New Air Charter Service

On Tuesday, Eclipse Aviation announced during the Singapore Air Show it has sold 10 Eclipse 500 jets to Club One Air of New Delhi, India. The purchase marks the Albuquerque, NM-based planemaker's entry into the Indian business aviation market, and marks another step for the company into the global aircraft market.

"Eclipse Aviation is experiencing a period of rapid international expansion, and today’s announcement illustrates the strong demand for the safety, quality and low operating costs of the Eclipse 500," said Mike McConnell, Eclipse’s vice president of sales and marketing. "Establishing a presence for the Eclipse 500 in India through Club One Air will introduce more people to the benefits of owning and flying on private jet aircraft, which continues to be the goal of Eclipse Aviation."

Manav Singh, promoter and managing director of Club One Air, India’s largest non-scheduled air operator and first fractional aircraft ownership company, has chosen the Eclipse 500 to launch a new air charter service in India. The aircraft will be operated under another company, promoted by Singh.

The company will use Eclipse 500s to expand its offering and provide more business travelers a quick, affordable, and convenient way to travel across India.

"The Eclipse 500’s very low acquisition and operating costs, along with its comfortable cabin, make it the ideal aircraft for enhancing business travel in India," said Singh. "We’re confident, that with the plans we have for the Eclipse 500 in India, we will provide our clients with a fantastic experience and convenience of reaching their travel destinations at very affordable prices."
