BlackBerry maker RIM is looking at selling one of its two jets in an effort to save money on operating costs, according to an unnamed source.
The source says that the company has put their Dassault Aviation SA F50EX 9-passenger jet up for sale for somewhere in the region of $6.5 million, a move that would leave the company with access to a Dassault F900EX 14-passenger jet.
Bloomberg queried the possible sale with RIM, with the company saying in a statement:
“We’re looking at options with both our aircraft costs and finding ways to reduce our travel while still making sure we keep in close contact with our partners around the world. It’s all part of the effort to find ways to reduce costs and drive efficiencies that Thorsten Heins has talked about.”
