Luxaviation Adds Praetor 600 to UK Fleet


Luxaviation has added an Embraer Praetor 600 to its UK charter fleet.

The aircraft, which has capacity for up to nine passengers and three crew members, will be based at London Biggin Hill Airport. With a range of 4,000 nautical miles, the Praetor 600 will be able to fly from London to New York or Dubai nonstop.

“Demand for super-midsize jets has rapidly increased. The Praetor 600 is an exciting addition to our fleet and we are looking forward to showing this technically advanced aircraft off to our charter customers. “Its location makes it the perfect base to deliver quick flight access for clients based in London and the South East,” said George Galanopoulos, CEO, Luxaviation UK.

“We have refurbished the aircraft and passengers can experience seamless onboard Wi-Fi, touchscreen cabin controls and immersive audio and video streaming, promising unrivalled levels of comfort and inflight entertainment. The aircraft’s extensive range means we can fly our clients to mid- and long-haul destinations without the need to refuel. Fully equipped and ultra-quiet, the Praetor 600 is perfect for those looking to work, relax or travel with family and friends.”

Robert Walters, commercial director, London Biggin Hill Airport, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Praetor 600 to our airport, a valuable addition to Luxaviation’s growing fleet. We look forward to supporting the team with a range of bespoke services, to further enhance the exemplary experiences we provide for our passengers, crew and charter customers.”

Embraer unveiled the Praetor 600 at NBAA in 2018 as the significantly improved version of the popular Legacy 500 aircraft. The Praetor 600 is the largest purpose-built business jet that the Brazilian OEM produces.
