ExecuJet expands fleet with three long-range jets

ExecuJet, part of the Luxaviation Group, is extending its managed fleet with the addition of three long-range jets — a Bombardier Global Express, Bombardier Global 7500 and Dassault Falcon 8X. 

The Global Express is now available to charter; it boasts capacity for up to 14 passengers and is recently refurbished to an ultra-luxury specification. With a range of 6,200nm, the aircraft can fly nonstop from London to Singapore. 

The Global 7500, Bombardier’s flagship ultra-long-range business jet, is the first of its type to join Luxaviation’s fleet and one of only a handful under operation globally. The jet, which will be operated privately and based in Germany, can accommodate up to 19 passengers and has a maximum range of 7,700nm, with a top speed of Mach 0.925.  The Falcon 8X, based in Malaysia, has a 6,450nm range and links important city pairs nonstop; including Hong Kong-Paris, London-Cape Town and Los Angeles-Beijing. 

Niclas von Planta, vice president, ExecuJet Europe, said: “To be announcing not one but three new additions to our fleet is testament to our customers’ trust in the Luxaviation Group for its aircraft expertise, and marks seven new aircraft in as many months. 

“Our customers are increasingly looking to long-range jets to support their needs in today’s global business environment. We’re answering that demand with our expanded fleet capabilities, particularly the new Global Express, which can be chartered from today. As intercontinental travel requirements grow, our expansive fleet, global FBO presence and award-winning safety and service record will ensure we can continue to meet and surpass our clients’ expectations across the world.”
