JEA was obliged to lease several HS748s as an interim measure until Fokker F27-500s become available. HS748 G-BGMN joined the JEA fleet in late 1989 and remained until mid-1992.

Appropriately registered G-JEAJ (for Avro Jet), one of the 17 British European 146s is seen here during a recent photocall to show off its new livery.
British European has 12 firm orders and eight options for the RJX100. The type will be used for the carrier’s independent network and for its Air France franchise services, for which they will operate in a 100-seat configuration.
Viscount, G-AVJB, served with JEA in 1980 in the airline’s red/white/blue livery. During the course of that summer, the aircraft spent some time flying charters for Air UK, British Midland and Dan Air. On October 28, 1980, it operated its final service for JEA with a return trip to Malaga.
JEA leased Short SD3-30, G-BJUK, in 1985. The airline operated seven Skyvans, including four 36-seat SD3-60s, which were faster and provided in-flight catering.
JEA began its operations with two Bandeirantes, one being G-BHJZ, which later acquired the Spacegrand livery.
