Heart Aerospace and US charter carrier JSX sign LOI for up to 100 ES-30 airplanes

Swedish hybrid-electric airplane maker Heart Aerospace and US charter carrier JSX have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for the purchase of 50 of the Swedish company’s regional ES-30 airplane, with an option for an additional 50 as previously reported on Urban Air Mobility News.

JSX, which was launched in 2016, reports it is now the biggest public charter carrier in the US, operating point-to-point flights to 24 destinations and says the Letter of Intent forms part of its commitment to sustainable regional transportation in the US.

“The ES-30 is a regional hybrid-electric airplane with a standard seating capacity of 30 passengers offering low emissions, low noise pollution and lower operating costs on short haul routes” according to the press release. “It will have a fully electric zero emissions range of 200 kilometres, an extended hybrid range of 400 kilometres with 30 passengers and flexibility to fly up to 800 kilometres with 25 passengers, all including typical airline reserves.

“Heart Aerospace now has a total of 250 firm orders for the ES-30, with options and purchase rights for an additional 120 planes. Including the LOI from JSX, the company also has letters of intent for a further 191 airplanes.”
