FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – SparkJet ‘s executives announced yesterday in an email to its employees of a fleet restructuring to occur in the upcoming weeks. Zeke Elias, SparkJet’s CEO explained in the email that due to the JS41 and the ATR resulting uneconomical for SparkJet they would be replaced with the Embraer 135 and Embraer 170 respectively, and once the aicraft were ferried in they would enter service. The email also talked about the replacement of all A320′s at the Albuquerque, NM (ICAO:KABQ) hub for B737-800′s and managed to surprise the employees when they read that SparkJet would be adding the B757-200ER to the fleet to replace two A320′s from the Albuquerque, NM (ICAO:KABQ) hub and add flights to South America from the Fort Lauderdale, FL (ICAO:KFLL) Hub, a move that had been secretly in the behind the scene plans for months. “SparkJet’s A320′s will be placed into storage until they are needed for expansion” was something that Zeke Elias made sure to tell the employees, SparkJet is also planning on replacing the A330′s but is waiting on the opportunity to purchase B767-300′s that are up to SparkJet standards.

“The four new B757-200′s give SparkJet a lot of flexibility when it comes to longer-haul routes that a B737-800 is not capable of serving, plus it brings the consumer a new experience in flying” said Zeke Elias when asked about the secret change this morning at the corporate offices. “We worked very closely with the DOT and the governments of Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru and Colombia to bring to the consumer the best selection of flights and routes while remaining competitive within the industry.”
