LEA increases fleet with Challenger 300
One of Europe’s largest business jet charter operators London Executive Aviation (LEA), based at London Luton Airport, is continuing with expansion by adding another Bombardier Challenger 300 to its fleet.
“The addition of this Bombardier Challenger 300 to our fleet highlights our dedication to offering the broadest range of aircraft options for business charter operations. We have now amassed considerable experience of operating this type and have been very pleased with its dispatch reliability. The aircraft fully meets passenger expectations for cabin comfort and space, and we have received consistently positive customer feedback” said LEA’s managing director George Galanopoulos. He continued, “Our Challenger 300s fill a niche in our fleet between the midsize Citation Excel and large cabin Embraer Legacys. Their impressive range, coupled with their modern, spacious cabins, makes these aircraft an extremely popular choice.”
The super midsize Challenger 300 has a 3,600 mile range and can operate from runways as short as 1,300 metres. Capable of making non-stop flights from London to destinations such as Moscow, Jeddah, Lagos and Dubai, it can seat up to ten passengers as well as the crew and a stewardess. It is a technologically advanced, high-performance business jet with intercontinental range. It features ‘fly by wire’ avionics, highly efficient Honeywell HTF7000 engines and a state-of-the-art cabin entertainment system.
