While Southend Airport seems to be having a difficult time (it lost 21% passengers in May 2015 against May 2014), resident charter company Jota Aviation is expanding with the addition of a fifth King Air turboprop, a C90 GTX plus updating its BAe 146-200 50-seat VIP executive jet with 2+2 seating.
It has also succeeded in gaining approval to widen its AOC coverage fleet-wide to cover the Middle East, Africa, Iceland, Russia and the Azores, enabling it to respond to international charter requests.
Jota is targeting incentive events, car launches, sports and music tours and international football teams with the 50-seat BAe 146, says Commercial Manager Mike Sessions, adding that the aircraft has proved popular with flying sports teams, film production teams, plus sub-charter ACMI work for UK and European carriers.
Jota Aviation is the largest European operator of the King Air C90. The C90 seats up to six and the larger King Air 200 up to eight passengers. It also runs a dedicated cargo version with a large double cargo door, with capability in excess of 1,000kgs. The King Airs are available 24/7 for passenger and freight bookings. Jota uses the Stobart-run FBO at Southend Airport. www.jotaaviation.com
