Aircraft management and charter operator Luxaviation is expanding its European and Middle East fleets with the addition of a Gulfstream G600 and an Embraer Lineage 1000 and Legacy 600, the Luxembourg-based company announced yesterday. The G600 will be based at London Luton Airport, making Luxaviation the first operator to offer the type for charter in the UK.
Both the Lineage bizliner and super-midsize Legacy 600, operating under a San Marino air operator certificate, will be available for charter and managed by Luxaviation’s Middle East team. “As the world eagerly awaits the easing of restrictions with growing optimism, the Middle East and London will soon become thriving global charter destinations again,” said George Galanopoulos, Luxaviation's head of charter sales for Europe. “The G600 will be a perfect jet for the resurgent UK travel market, easily connecting London to key cities and economic centers as far away as Beijing, Hong Kong, and Singapore.”
The company also added a Bombardier Challenger 300 to its managed fleet in Turkey. This twinjet is not available for charter, however.
