UK helicopter charter operator PremiAir, which is diversifying into fixed wing operations, has added a Learjet 45 to its AOC following its acquisition of the former Gold Air facilities at London Biggin Hill.
Neil Gibson, director aircraft charter and management, says: "PremiAir offers clients a fully integrated executive helicopter and private jet option which gives us a distinct advantage over other operators. Many customers are interested in the time saving benefits of connecting arrivals and departures at the major London airports: some 40 per cent of helicopter movements departing the London Heliport connect on to business jets."
Matt Ashby, operations manager, says: "The Learjet 45 has excellent range, speed, payload and short runway performance. Capable of flying non-stop between London and Moscow, our Learjet fleet is also certificated for London City which adds an important dimension to our private jet services."
