The agreement with the City of Karratha would underpin Jetgo moving up from its current fleet of Embraer ERJ regional jets (above) in the 37 to 50 seat market segment to the larger 88 seat Embraer E175. This is a logical step for our business and builds on five and a half years of jet operations, including domestic airline services along with domestic and international jet charter services.
Jetgo (Australia) is a new charter airline that plans to serve the growing mining sector. Formerly operated by FlyMex as XA-AMM and Chautauqua Airlines as N833RP, this 37-seat Embraer ERJ 135LR is now registered as VH-JTG (msn 145687). The charter airline is leasing the aircraft and took delivery at Shannon on March 7-8. The company plans to operate the regional jet into smaller airfields.
