One of the more little known jet airliners around is the Dornier 328JET. These were manufactured in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany by Dornier, a business with a long history in aviation.
Today there are just a few airlines that still use this aircraft. One is in Europe and two others are in the United States, so it’s not particularly easy to get a flight on one.
Dornier 328Jet in the United States
Denver Air Connection, a Key Lime Air company, operate a number of these out of Colorado. Scheduled charter services fly from Denver to a few places in Colorado and surrounding states.
Ultimate Jet Charters based in Ohio also operate the Dornier 328JET. You can charter the jet for whatever you need, with particular emphasis on sports charters, corporate travel and the like.
British Airways Dornier 328JET Services
In Europe, Sun-Air of Scandinavia operate the Dornier 328JET as a British Airways franchisee. Based in Denmark, flights operate to the UK, Germany, France, Sweden and Norway.
All of these are able to be booked on the British Airways web site, and frequent flyers earn miles in the Executive Club. As standard scheduled flights, these are perhaps the easiest to get on.
The Dornier 328JET seats just 30 passengers, with seats arranged two by one. People who frequent small regional jets will know that this configuration is not too unusual.
Sun-Air operate a premium on board service on their flights, catering to business passengers. They even use city airports such as Stockholm Bromma and London City, which appeals to their target market.
