Summer is in full swing in Monaco, and the heat has only served to rev the engines of the Boutsen Aviation team.
The company has surpassed its 360th aircraft transaction, another milestone coming quickly on the heels of the 350th that closed earlier this year.
In just the first few weeks of July, Boutsen closed a Falcon 7X, a Dornier 328 Jet, a Challenger 604, coming shortly after the sale of a Eurocopter EC120B, and a Gulfstream G550 in June.
“We have had an incredibly active summer” says Founder and Chairman Thierry Boutsen, “it is a clear sign that the market is picking up, and we look forward to what the fall season will bring.”
As the icing on the cake, President Dominique Trinquet added yet another sale at the beginning of August. On the first day of the month, he closed Falcon 7X #079, an aircraft belonging to the Saudi SPA fleet, of which Boutsen is selling several other 7X’s.
“As this was the first ever transaction with SPA, it gives me and the entire team great satisfaction to close the deal on #079 and I am confident the other aircraft in the fleet will soon follow suit,” said Mr. Trinquet, who traveled to Guernsey for the handover on Wednesday. Simultaneously, Executive Vice-President Mathieu Pezin closed a Falcon 8X, making for a total of 362 aircraft sold by the company to date.
While August is the height of the holiday season in the region, the brokerage team motors on. September will see much activity in the Principality and the company is ready and eager to tackle yet another milestone in the coming months.
