The two General Electric CF6-powered aircraft will join the three 767s it already operates – two of which are also ex-Thomsonfly aircraft. The carrier initially signed a letter of intent for the two aircraft in June.
Silverjet CEO Lawrence Hunt: “We are delighted to have completed the purchase of two further high quality long range aircraft on highly attractive terms relative to current aircraft prices, and to have announced another record set of traffic statistics.”
Silverjet, which launched flights to Dubai last month, recorded load factors of 55.3% for November.
“Yields continue to strengthen which is further testament to the market endorsement of our product. We are seeing very high numbers of repeat customers and New York sales in November was the best month to date,” Hunt says.
