The acquisition is part of Prima Air Group’s plan for long-term growth.
“With the combination of elite management, high-level operational experiences and efficiencies, along with the ever-expanding fleet of managed and owned aircrafts by Pegasus, Prima Air’s future vision and business models will establish the company as a strong player and industry leader,” said Lina Tullberg, Partner and CEO of Prima Air Group, in a news release.
“With the leadership of Dr. Huang and Lina Tullberg, Pegasus Elite Aviation will excel with a substantially enlarged and improved aircraft fleet,” Tim Prero, CEO of Pegasus Elite Aviation, added.
Record-Breaking Fleet Expansion
Pegasus is growing its fleet by adding a Gulfstream 650ER. The release notes that the Gulfstream 650ER holds the record for being the fastest and farthest-ranging private jet, with a maximum speed of 0.925 Mach and a range of 7,500 nautical miles.
