Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced during the Singapore Airshow an order for two Hawker 900XP midsized business jets from Jakarta-based Lion Air, with options for two additional aircraft. Lion Air plans to use the aircraft to meet the growing demand for charter services throughout the region. A signing ceremony is planned at 11 a.m. (SGT) today in Chalet CD-31 at the Changi Exhibition Center, where HBC and its international distributor, Hawker Pacific, are exhibiting a Hawker 900XP alongside a Hawker 4000 and a Beechcraft King Air 350ER.

“We’re proud that the Hawker 900XP is Lion Air’s selection to support the airline as it branches out into charter services,” said Dan Keady, HBC vice president, Asia Pacific and India. “Its performance and value, backed by the solid reputation of Hawker, make the 900XP an excellent charter aircraft for the Asia-Pacific region.”

Lion Air’s Hawker 900XP aircraft are scheduled to deliver in the second and third quarters of 2012. The Hawker 900XP business jets will join a growing fleet of aircraft for Lion Air, notably their recent announcement to purchase 230 Boeing 737 airplanes. 

The Hawker 900XP is the most advanced version yet of the world’s best-selling midsize business jet. Offering unmatched comfort and a uniquely refined Cabin First design, the Hawker 900XP enhances its look and performance with composite winglets and state-of-the-art Honeywell engines for increased performance, range and efficiency at an unprecedented value.
