Silverjet buys its second jet

Silverjet, the British-owned all business class airline, has announced the delivery of its second aircraft, due to begin service in July.
The Luton-based airline said that the aircraft, purchased from Thomsonfly, will create an additional return flight on its London Luton to New York Newark route after its fit-out including 102 beds.Financing of the aircraft was via a sale and leaseback arrangement with Novus Capital, within the parameters of its business plan, the firm said.“We have had significant customer demand for a second daily service and this will allow us to capture some of the afternoon transatlantic market out of London,” said chief executive, Lawrence Hunt.
