King of the Air: Beechcraft King Air 200

Tuesday, February 2, 2021

The Beechcraft King Air 200 aircraft is one of the most cost-effective aircraft on the market. This twin-engine turboprop is ideal for short-haul flights for groups of up to 8 passengers - depending on the seating configuration - making it a popular choice for domestic UK flights and many European destinations.

With the ability to operate on shorter runways, the King Air 200 can fly into and out of smaller airports that may not be accessible for Jet aircraft, allowing you to get closer to your destination. Many King Air models have recently been refurbished by operators, upgrading the aircraft cabin to ensure they are kept modern and stylish and offer greater passenger comfort.

With a pressurised cabin, the King Air 200 can cruise at up to 28,000ft but do fly slower than a Jet aircraft so slightly longer flight times can be expected. We recommend the King Air 200 for routes of within 02 hours 30 minutes, making destinations such as Geneva, Paris, Nice, Amsterdam or Dublin all reachable direct from the UK.

Similar jet comparisons on the market include the Citation CJ2 or Citation Bravo, but the King Air is often more cost-effective over a Jet option. And with more recently upgraded models of the King Air now available for charter including the 200GT and 350 models, both of which offer improved performance and increased range, the King Air is a great charter option.
