ExecuJet adds Challenger 604 and Citation jets in Australia
ExecuJet is added a Bombardier Challenger 604 and a Cessna Citation VII to its managed and charter fleet based in Sydney, Australia.
Darren McGoldrick, vice president Australasia, ExecuJet Aviation Group, says: “We are delighted to add two aircraft to our charter fleet. The Challenger 604 is a popular choice for regional travel and we expect this particular aircraft to serve destinations such throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia. We also look forward to adding a Citation VII in the next few months, which will provide our customers a charter aircraft for short range destinations.”
ExecuJet has grown its Australasian fleet of managed aircraft from 10 to 18 in the last 12 months, with 10 aircraft under full management in Australia and New Zealand and a further eight aircraft in south-east Asia.
“The growth in the fleet is recognition by aircraft owners of the value and experience that ExecuJet brings to the management of their aircraft,” added McGoldrick.
ExecuJet is displaying its new Challenger 604 at Avalon Airshow 2015, the Australian International Airshow and Aerospace and Defence Exposition in Geelong, Australia, which runs from 24 February to 1 March.
In anticipation of further growth in Australasia, ExecuJet is scaling up its aircraft management, having established a new base in Singapore to lead business development across south-east Asia.
“ExecuJet’s core attraction in south-east Asia is our global presence,” added McGoldrick. “Not only are we an expert in virtually all business aviation activities, from management and chartering through to maintenance and completions, but we operate around the world.
“Many of our clients own long or ultra-long-range aircraft and have worldwide business interests. They want the reassurance of consistent service wherever they are, with the same agreements, record-keeping and quality processes. With our wholly owned operations in key locations around the globe, ExecuJet is superbly placed to meet this demand.”
ExecuJet in Australasia has also been appointed an ACR Artex Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) battery replacement and programming centre, which expands the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for business aviation.
