Gulfstream Presents the G500 and the G280 at Kortrijk Airport on Invitation of Luxaviation Belgium

02 July 2021

This week Gulfstream presented the G500 and G280 at Kortrijk-Wevelgem airport. In the margins, Ward Bonduel (37), CEO of Luxaviation Belgium, explained how the charter and corporate aircraft management activities have evolved over the past year and a half.

As in many other sectors, the coronavirus pandemic also hit the business jet segment hard, but the crisis also offers new opportunities. Ward Bonduel, CEO of Luxaviation Belgium (formerly known as Abelag): “Our customers’ long-haul jets are still largely grounded due to travel restrictions. That will weigh on our results for the time being, but let’s take a look at the borders with the US reopened, we expect a lot of flights to North America. A transatlantic airlift, as it were.”
