Founded in 2001, we are your partner for your next flight
JUMP AWAY AVIATION was founded by Oliver Heinz and Torsten Mache as a civil law company (GbR) in Wiesbaden. In the beginning, we ran business flights for customers from around Wiesbaden.
These flights primarily ran from Mainz-Finthen and Egelsbach airstrips and Hahn and Frankfurt-Main airports to destinations within Germany or to neighbouring European countries. We mostly used Cessna 421 or King Air 90 propeller planes.
We quickly gained more customers from across Germany and our flights had to cover much larger areas. We increasingly used jets as well as turbo-propeller aircraft – particularly the 5-seater CitationJet CJ1 produced by American manufacturer Cessna. That meant we could offer our passengers more comfort and faster flight speeds and therefore also cover longer distances.
Charter flights for groups
JUMP AWAY AVIATION’s second portfolio section, transporting groups of at least 20 people but sometimes quite large numbers, gradually developed as time went on: group flights for company outings, incentive trips, employee training, road shows, conferences, special events or any regular event now make up about half of JUMP AWAY AVIATION’s business. Our customers are companies of all sizes representing various different sectors.
W also gradually set up other companies for different tasks in and outside of Germany to supplement our civil law company (GbR). Nowadays, our group of companies also includes a tour operator and this enables synergies in many areas.
Worldwide flight projects
Over the last 15 years, JUMP AWAY AVIATION has run charter flights around the world carrying groups of up to 1,500 people, using planes big and small, including a 300-seater Airbus A330, and has brought tens of thousands of passengers to their destinations on several thousand flights in safety and on time. Over the last 10 years, only one flight had to be cancelled – because of extremely poor weather conditions – all the others ran as planned.
JUMP AWAY AVIATION offers its customers good value for money and a very high level of service. We have continued to expand our service range. For example, on 1st January 2017, we started our new frequent flyer programme “PlatinumAirCard” for private jet charter flights.
