ExecuJet South Africa expands fleet, wins safety award


Charter company ExecuJet South Africa has expanded its fleet with the addition of a Bombardier Global Express based at Lanseria International Airport near Johannesburg.

The new addition to the Luxaviation Group subsidiary firm can carry up to 13 passengers and offers a range of 4,800 nautical miles. ExecuJet said fleet expansion will be a key area of focus alongside safety.

The South African division of the company also announced that it has received an upgraded safety award from aviation safety specialists South Africa’s Litson and Associates (L&A). ExecuJet South Africa was awarded the Gold level safety recognition, an upgrade from the Silver award it received in 2021.

Gavin Kiggen, vice president, Africa, Luxaviation said the new aircraft and safety recognition will be “highly attractive” to charter customers across Africa. “This new Gold award recognises our high aviation safety standards over a number of years and reflects the results of L&A reviews,” he said. “From flight and ground operations to maintenance and training, safety is now, and will always be, our top priority.”

Last week, ExecuJet’s Flight Services reopened the FBO at St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands under new management, following years of closures due to hurricanes and Covid-19.
