Luxaviation Group expands fleet with new Global 7500 and Legacy 650
15 April 2021
Luxembourg – Luxaviation Group, one of the largest business aircraft and helicopter operators worldwide, is expanding its global managed fleet with the arrival of a new Bombardier Global 7500 and Embraer Legacy 650.
The Bombardier Global 7500, the world’s largest and longest range business jet, is the first aircraft of its model to be available for charter within the UK and will operate under Luxaviation’s UK AOC at London Luton Airport.
The Embraer Legacy 650 joins ExecuJet Africa, part of the Luxaviation Group, under Part 91. The aircraft will not be for commercial use.
Niclas von Planta, Vice President of ExecuJet Europe, says: “There is a really limited number of Global 7500s available for charter within Europe, but the demand is there, and the arrival of this new aircraft will meet the needs of our business and long-haul leisure clients, short- and longer-term.
“In this current pandemic, aircraft owners have been seeking experienced aircraft management companies, like us, to ensure their aircraft are managed with the upmost safety and hygiene regulations, especially when the aircraft is being used for charter.”
The Global 7500 is suitable for up to 17 passengers and is capable of flying 7,700nm, the equivalent of flying from London to Hong Kong and has a top speed of Mach 0.925.
