Concierge Aviation adds new Challenger 300 to managed fleet
Concierge Aviation has added a new Bombardier Challenger 300, available for charter on Concierge’s AOC, to the company’s fleet of business jets based in Bristol, UK.
The aircraft was delivered to Concierge Aviation directly from the manufacturers in Montreal. The aircraft was photographed as it arrived at Bristol on its delivery flight from Montreal.
“This delivery was the culmination of a two and a half year project with the owner of the aircraft,” said managing director Glen Smith “We completed operational evaluations of several different models to ensure we achieved the best balance of range, performance, cabin space and acquisition price before signing for the aircraft at EBACE 2012. Twelve months later Bombardier delivered this high specification aircraft on schedule. The quality of service from the sales and delivery team was exceptional.”
“We are delighted to see our Challenger 300 jet joining Concierge Aviation’s fleet and are confident that our leading Challenger aircraft will exceed Concierge Aviation’s clients’ needs and expectations” said Trevor Lambarth, regional vice-president, Sales, Western Europe, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
Glen Smith added “The addition of the Challenger aircraft is a strategic enhancement to our operation both from a fleet perspective and also geographically as we have extended our AOC to include North and South America, Africa and the Far East offering our clients a far wider range of non-stop destinations.”
Smith continued “The spacious cabin configuration of eight individual seats is beautifully appointed and provides an excellent environment for business or relaxation. Our team has worked tirelessly on this project and we will now address our focus to ensure we maintain our level of service delivery in this new market.”
Bryan Treadgold, chief pilot at Concierge commented “We are hugely impressed with the capability and operation of this aircraft and have seen it consistently meet the published performance figures over a variety of sectors both within Europe and Transatlantic.”
