Luxaviation adds six aircraft to global fleet


Operator Luxaviation has expanded its global fleet with the arrival of six aircraft.

Two new Cessna Citation CJ4 Gen2 aircraft (pictured) will be available for charter as well as a Bombardier Global 5000, Cessna Citation CJ2 and a Beechcraft King Air 260. The sixth aircraft, a Bombardier Challenger 604, will join Luxaviation’s privately managed fleet. With the new arrivals, Luxaviation now operates a fleet of more than 100 aircraft.

The new additions will be stationed across Europe, Africa and Asia. The Bombardier Global 500 will be based in Dubai for routes to Perth and California, while the Cessna Citation CJ2 and CJ4 Gen2 will be based in Germany and Belgium respectively. The Beechcraft King Air 260 will be able to charter clients to locations including Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe from its base in South Africa.

“Such rapid expansion of our charter fleet shows how powerfully and confidently we are emerging from the shadow of the pandemic,” said George Galanopoulos, CEO and head of Charter Sales Europe, Luxaviation. “Our ever-growing fleet offers increasingly diverse options to meet the mission demands of any customer. Whether supporting our charter flight clients or managing the valuable and important private jet assets of owners, we always deliver the highest standards of safety, reliability, value and service.”

In May, Luxaviation added a Cessna Citation M2 Gen2 to its charter fleet, basing the aircraft in France. The company added aircraft to its European and Middle Eastern fleets last year, placing a Gulfstream G600 in London Luton, a Bombardier Challenger 300 in Turkey and an Embraer Lineage 1000 and Legacy 600 across the Middle East.
