This recognition led to significant fleet expansion, including the addition of two ultra-long-range Global Express aircraft, the Global XRS N372BC and Global Express N271GL, along with a luxurious Gulfstream G650ER. These additions underscore our commitment to providing best-in-class service and performance in private aviation.
  • Strategic Expansion: From its headquarters at Van Nuys Airport to additional bases in New York, London, and Lisbon, Planet 9 has strategically positioned itself to offer unparalleled service worldwide. Our ability to manage complex, international missions seamlessly has set us apart as a preferred operator for discerning travelers.
