Silverjet looks to expand

London-based business-class carrier Silverjet will receive two more Boeing 767-200ER airplanes that will allow it to possibly extend service to longer-range routes. The planes, which are due for delivery in March 2008, are from British charter airline Thomsonfly. While the airline hasn't yet announced any new routes, the extended range 767s allow it to fly to destinations in Asia, Africa, and the US West Coast. "We are delighted to have secured a letter of intent for two further long range aircraft for delivery in March 2008," said Lawrence Hunt, Silverjet CEO. "With these five aircraft we are on track to operate ten aircraft within three years as set out at the time of our IPO."
