PremiAir adds Learjet 45
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.

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."
