Luxaviation Group proudly announces the introduction of two new aircraft to its fleet.

The large cabin Challenger 350, joining the Luxaviation fleet in Brussels, is a first for the Benelux market, providing a state-of-the art cabin for up to 9 passengers with a range of close to 6,000 kilometers which allow passengers to, for example, go continuously from Brussels to Dubai.

The Cessna Citation CJ4, which integrated the Luxaviation Belgium fleet at the Kortrijk-Wevelgem facility, has joined an identical Cessna type, managed by Luxaviation since 2016. The aircraft welcomes up to 8 passengers and will be operated out of Brussels-Zaventem and Kortrijk airports. Luxaviation Belgium is the sole operator of the Citation CJ4 in Belgium.

An-Céline Claes, Handling & Protocol Manager of the ExecuJet Brussels FBO, said: “Ministerial and Heads of State flights require an increased amount of procedures and protocols which the Brussels FBO team are highly experienced in delivering, and summit events taking place around the city result in handling requirements for airliners up to Boeing 747-800, which we are fully equipped to service. I believe we uphold the core values our customers’ desire; Trust, Reliability and Safety, and we look forward to continuing our success into the New Year.”

Luxaviation Belgium further grows its aircraft fleet and plans to integrate an additional Cessna Citation XLS+ vehicle to its existing fleet at the Kortrijk-Wevelgem facility in the first quarter of 2019.

Operated by ExecuJet, Luxaviation Belgium Brussels FBO, has had very successful business year with close to 7,000 aircraft movements, a significant number of wide body aircraft. The increase in traffic was driven by loyal existing customers but also a result of a number of noteworthy summit events taking place in Brussels and gathering high-level stakeholders from EU, NATO and ASEM. The FBO is thriving to proceed to IS-BAH Stage II accreditation in January 2019 after having received its Stage I accreditation in 2017.
