Our Heritage Story

Our Heritage Story

Belgian visionary and pioneer, André Ganshof van der Meersch, founded a small company, Abelag, one of the predecessors of Luxaviation, in 1964. André, an accomplished pilot, studied flying in the United States and saw the immense potential of private aviation in Europe. Bringing know-how, achieved through his own hard work and an innate fearless spirit learned from his Solvay heritage, André’s first private flights took to Belgium’s skies, rapidly expanding and setting records. He did not do it alone, Abelag was his family. Staff and crew accompanied André on board as he flew around the globe, even to his private homes. He experienced luxury the way he wanted his clients to experience it– understanding that walking in their shoes was his only pathway to success. It is with these founding cornerstones of humility and inclusivity that Luxaviation leverages our excellence in service experience.
