Zenith Aviation, based at London Biggin Hill Airport in the UK, has ordered two Bombardier Learjet 75s. The order was announced at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas this week.
Zenith Aviation has been flying Learjet aircraft since 1999, and acquired its first two new Learjet 75 business jets just over a year ago. These will be UK-based, with several airports being considered.
“Since their delivery at the end of last year, we have benefitted significantly from adding two Learjet 75 aircraft into our existing fleet, almost doubling our hours flown in 2017.”
Stuart Mulholland, managing director of Zenith Aviation, said: “Since their delivery at the end of last year, we have benefitted significantly from adding two Learjet 75 aircraft into our existing fleet, almost doubling our hours flown in 2017.
“We’re extremely happy with their performance and more clients are requesting the Learjet brand, re-energising the demand for the traditional double-club, eight-seat configuration. With the additional Learjet 75 aircraft arriving next year, we look forward to being able to satisfy our ever-increasing customer demand in 2018.”
Zenith Aviation, which specialises in short-haul charters throughout Europe, now ranks as the region’s largest operator of Learjet 75 aircraft, with a combined fleet of four aircraft. There are approximately 160 Learjet aircraft currently based in Europe.
“It’s very clear that the impressive capabilities of our Learjet 75 business jet, along with Zenith Aviation’s commitment to impeccable service, are a winning combination with customers,” said Christophe Degoumois, Bombardier Business Aircraft’s vice president, Sales, Europe, Russia, CIS. “We were proud to celebrate our 100th Learjet 75 aircraft delivery in June, and this remarkable aircraft will continue to lead the way by bringing advanced large-jet features to the light and super-light jet segments.”
