Jota adds RJ100

An ex-Brussels Airlines Avro RJ100 is on its way to the Southend Airport-based independent charter carrier Jota Aviation after the company signed a letter of intent with the leasing company Falko Regional Aircraft.

The aircraft, serial number E3355, is due to arrive at Jota before the end of the month, joining an Avro RJ85 and BAe 146-200, Jota managing director Andy Green said at the European Regions Airline Association spring meeting in Copenhagen. 

The aircraft will be re-registered to fly under the G register as G-JOTS and is scheduled to enter service in May with  97 seats in a five-abreast layout following a maintenance check at Avalon Aero at Cranfield Airport and full repaint in Jota colours.  

Head of commercial Mike Sessions said its arrival would be “well timed” for the summer period, when legacy carriers become busier and tend to depend on sub charter, short term leases.

“Europe’s legacy and regional airlines including Malmo, Swiss International and CityJet, are also  progressing with plans to phase out this aircraft type, so the supply is there for us, especially for London City Airport,” he added.
