Silverjet to add second aircraft on Luton to New York route

Silverjet, the all business-class airline, has taken delivery of its second aircraft which will begin operating on the carrier's London Luton to New York Newark Airport route this summer.
The airline began daily flights to New York at the end of January this year, offering a business class product for lower prices than full-service airlines.
It now plans to add a second daily return service using the new Boeing 767-200 aircraft, which it will equip with 100 six-foot three-inch long beds.
"We are delighted to announce the delivery of our second aircraft as we build on the success of our first 100 days of operations," said the airline's chief executive Lawrence Hunt.
"We have again demonstrated our ability to deliver on the objectives set out at the IPO and have been taking bookings since December 2006 for our second daily return service to Newark New York which will launch on 2 July 2007 from our private terminal facility at London Luton Airport."
Having a private terminal at Luton means that check-in times for Silverjet flights are cut to 30 minutes (for those with only carry-on baggage).
The airline is also running a competition together with The Guardian to offer participants the chance to win two return tickets to New York. Entrants simply need to enter details such as their name and address via the newspaper's website.
