Approval for extended range operations received by NetJets Transportes Aereos.
Operating company of NetJets Europe , NetJets Transportes Aereos today announced that it has received approval from the Portuguese Civil Aviation Authority (INAC) to conduct Extended Range Operations (EROPS) under commercial rules.
This new authorisation means that NetJets Europe is allowed to fly its twin engine Gulfstream G550 aircraft 180 minutes flight time from an airport at any given point along a route.
EROPS will allow for more direct routes, fewer fuel stops and reduced fuel burn which should result in a more seamless experience. On a flight from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil to Cape Town in South Africa, the new authorisation could save 2.8 hours of flight time and 12,075lbs of fuel.
