London Executive Aviation expands charter fleet
London Executive Aviation (LEA) has expanded its charter fleet with the addition of its first Embraer Phenom 300.
The aircraft can seat up to seven passengers and will be based at London Luton Airport. It is the only Phenom 300 currently available for charter in the UK. LEA now has 29 business aircraft in its fleet.
Patrick Margetson-Rushmore, chief executive, LEA said “We are delighted to add our first Phenom 300 to the fleet and become the only operator to currently offer this aircraft for charter in the UK. The Phenom 300 has been widely lauded since entering the market in 2009 and it now adds further quality and diversity to our ever-expanding fleet.”
Margetson-Rushmore continued “With its spacious, comfortable cabin and the largest baggage compartment in its class, we have no doubt that the Phenom 300 will be one of the most popular aircraft among our business and leisure clients.”
Captains Stefan Pedersen and Ian Austin flew the Phenom 300 on its delivery flight between Brazil and London. Captain Stefan Pedersen said “We flew the aircraft back over a three day period, routing via the Caribbean, the US and Keflavik. Thanks to the fast cruising speed and low cabin altitude, the Phenom 300 is one of the smoothest, most comfortable and best looking jets around.”
