The World's most Sivilised Airline

Silverjet was a British all-business class airline based at London Luton Airport that, prior to the suspension of operations on 30 May 2008, operated services to Newark Liberty International Airport and Dubai International Airport.


Silverjet Aviation Limited was created in 2004 by Lawrence Hunt. Prior to launch, the airline secured sufficient funding to begin trading on the AIM, a market operated by the London Stock Exchange, and joined the AIM on 12 May 2006. The airline secured two Boeing 767-200 aircraft in August 2006 that were previously operated by Thomsonfly. These were delivered in March 2007 and October 2007 and were Silverjet's launch aircraft. With the acquisition of British Charter Flyjet in October 2006, Silverjet took ownership of their two Boeing 757 and one Boeing 767 aircraft. This also provided Silverjet with Flyjet’s Air Operator’s Certificate, Operating Licence and a worldwide Route Licence.
