Jet Republic Launches in Europe

Jet Republic
has acquired 110 Bombardier Learjet 60XRs - 25 orders and 85 options valued at $1.5 billion - which it claims to be the largest single business jet order in European aircraft history. The company is also considering adding new aircraft types to its fleet later date.

"The Jet card will be offered from launch at a price of €130,000 ($190,000) for 25 hours of flying time," says Jet Republic chief executive Jonathan Breeze.
