Flying start to 2017 for Luxaviation UK with brand new Mustang and Challenger 350

Luxaviation UK (formerly London Executive Aviation), the UK’s largest private jet charter operator, is celebrating the start of 2017 with the arrival of a Cessna Citation Mustang and a Bombardier Challenger 350 to its fleet, both brand new.

These new additions bring Luxaviation UK’s total fleet number to twenty six.

Both aircraft belong to new clients for Luxaviation UK. George Galanopoulos, managing director, Luxaviation UK says: “We start the year as we mean to go on! In 2016, we progressed a significant number of new aircraft management proposals - certainly more than the previous few years - and we are confident our new relationships will see the fleet grow further over the coming months.”

The Citation Mustang, the fourth of its type in Luxaviation UK’s fleet, will be based in Nice, France and be available for charter from February 2017. With space for four passengers and a maximum distance of 1,200 nm (2,222 km), from the South of France it will be able to reach throughout Europe and the UK, as well as parts of Scandinavia and North Africa.

The Challenger 350 will be based at Luton Airport, UK. With space for nine passengers and a maximum distance of 3,200 nm (5,930 km), the Challenger 350 is for the client’s corporate use only. Its on-board Satcom system means that passengers can stay connected to the ground, making it the ideal place to hold meetings on the go.

Galanopoulos continues: “The addition of the Mustang and Challenger 350 marks an exciting time for Luxaviation UK. We are committed to ensuring that clients receive the state-of-the-art, luxury experience they expect from private aviation alongside our unrivalled customer service and our key values of going above and beyond, across all aspects of our business.”

The Mustang and Challenger 350 bring Luxaviation UK’s total fleet number to 26 business aviation aircraft, also including eight Embraer Legacy 600/650s, four Cessna Citation Excels, three further Citation Mustangs and the recent addition of a Dassault Falcon 2000LXS. The new aircraft will also become part of the Luxaviation Group’s global fleet of more than 260 aircraft.
