ExecuJet Africa expands fleet and heads for AERO South Africa

ExecuJet Africa, part of the Luxaviation Group, is celebrating charter fleet expansion as the company heads to AERO South Africa.

ExecuJet Africa will be exhibiting on Stand OD17 at the event from July 7-9 2022, where a hot topic will be the new Beechcraft King Air 260 being added to the fleet.

Gavin Kiggen, Luxaviation’s Vice President, Africa, says: “We’re really excited to be exhibiting with a stand and static display at this industry-leading general aviation trade show, at a time when our business is growing so strongly. We’re emerging powerfully from challenging times.

“Our team at AERO South Africa will be delighted to discuss our established portfolio of aviation services, from aircraft management and insurance, corporate aircraft charter, fixed-base operations, aircraft sales, cargo charter and unmanned aerial vehicles to our range of luxury travel experiences and concierge services.

“Naturally, we’ll also be excited to talk about our new fleet additions. The Beechcraft King Air 260 is such a popular aircraft with the business community globally,” continues Kiggen, “and we’ll be offering this turboprop for charter in Africa for the first time. New from the factory in 2022, and able to carry up to eight passengers, the aircraft will be based at Lanseria International Airport, near Johannesburg. From there, we’re expecting high demand for flights to locations including Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. We also have a long-range jet from the Bombardier series joining later this year and we know the large-cabin comfort and range will be highly attractive to charter customers across Africa.”

AERO South Africa is taking place at Wonderboom National Airport in Pretoria.

The event hopes to welcome more than 4,000 visitors to meet over 100 exhibiting companies, showcasing the industry’s latest innovations. Features of the show will include demo flights, workshops and business-to-business ‘matchmaking’ meetings.
