Luxaviation UK adds London-based Global 6000 to fleet
London, UK: Luxaviation UK is announcing the addition of a Bombardier Global 6000 to its fleet, based at London Luton Airport.
The aircraft, now available for charter with a full-time crew, is only a year old and comes complete with a refined interior and high-speed KA Band Wi-Fi.
George Galanopoulos, Luxaviation UK’s managing director and newly appointed head of charter sales, Europe, for the Luxaviation Group, says: “The addition of this state-of-the-art Global 6000 is an exciting landmark for us because it will be the longest-range jet Luxaviation UK has available for charter, capable of covering more than 6,000 nautical miles. It has the widest cabin in its class and is one of the fastest business jets in the marketplace with a maximum cruising speed of Mach 0.89 – in most cases faster than a commercial jetliner. Our extensive experience with handling large-cabin jets through the Luxaviation Group means we’re fully prepared to advise our clients on how to make the most of this exceptional aircraft.
“We receive a lot of requests for flights from London to the United States, Caribbean, South America, Far East and beyond, and the Global 6000 will enable us to convert more of these requests into bookings, getting our clients there quickly, safely and privately. We look forward to providing our client base with a growing number of flight options, developing existing relationships and earning new ones.”
The Global 6000 is suitable for up to 15 passengers, with a four-place club configuration in the front, followed by a four-place conference group. The aft cabin is separated by a bulkhead and includes a divan opposite two single armchair seats that can also be converted into a bed. The jet joins Luxaviation UK’s fleet of Embraer Legacies and Phenoms, Dassault Falcons, Bombardier Challengers and Citation Excels.
