Safety remains a top priority, with a commitment to upholding high standards through the application of the latest training, industry best practices, and available technology.
With this latest addition, Xejet’s fleet now boasts three Bombardier CRJ200 aircraft, registered as 5N-XEL, 5N-XEJ, and 5N-XEK. Notably, 5N-XEL and 5N-XEJ are configured with 24 VIP seats, while 5N-XEK is configured with 17 VIP seats. Additionally, the airline operates two Embraer 145 aircraft.
