Speaking from the company headquarters in Zurich, Gerrit Basson, president of Aviation Services said, “Long-range aircraft such as the Bombardier Global 6000 and Dassault Falcon 7X are proving very popular and we are emerging as one of the world’s largest operators of both aircraft types. As the business aviation market recovers, we expect aircraft of this size to remain popular. Nonetheless, we are also seeing the global market recovery reflected across the breadth of our fleet, from turboprops to rotor aircraft, with a range of additions including a Beechcraft King Air 350 and Airbus AS350 B3e helicopter in Africa. Our managed fleet in Asia is also seeing fast growth, with high interest in ExecuJet’s aircraft management offering in Asia.”
The new additions to the European fleet include two Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft and a Dassault Falcon 7X, which now brings a total number in the global fleet to seven of each model.
Mr Basson continued, “Our charter fleet continues to grow too, with the addition of two managed aircraft available for charter – a Dassault Falcon 2000S in Billund, Denmark and a Bombardier Challenger 604 based in Sydney, Australia. As we continue to receive positive feedback and referrals from our clients, we anticipate our managed and charter fleets expanding further in the coming months.”
ExecuJet has operations in Africa, Australasia, Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East with a strong and growing workforce of more than 950 people.
