Cobham Prepares for Fly-In, Fly-Out Demand

Cobham Aviation Services announced that it will expand its fleet with two new aircraft types to prepare for growing fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) demand in the Australian charter market.

By the end of 2019, the company will acquire both the Bombardier Q400 turboprop and the Embraer E-Jet. These aircraft provide a capacity of 76 and 100 seats respectively.

Ryan Booth, Cobham’s chief executive officer, noted that the Q400 is a strategic addition for FIFO activities, as its reduced fuel consumption and higher speed position it ahead of alternative models.
