Boutsen Aviation has taken delivery of a new Gulfstream G550 for one of its clients.
Thierry Boutsen, ceo, said: "This G550 was ordered a year ago for one of our clients as part of an acquisition contract. We negotiated the sales agreement, advised our customer in the choice of interior layout and decoration, followed the construction of the aircraft as well as its cabin completion. I have to congratulate the Gulfstream team in Appleton for the fantastic work, we collected an aircraft with absolutely no squawks!"
Daniela Boutsen, vp marketing and interior design, added: "The arrival of the Gulfstream G550 was the perfect moment to officially launch our aircraft interior design department. We had already outfitted the two Airbus ACJs with the best and finest equipment available for glassware, cutlery, plates, bed linen, plaids plus all the decorative items which make our aircraft the nicest ones in the business. This G550 is the one that triggered the creation of our new department and we look forward to outfitting many more customer aircraft from now on."
The Gulfstream G550 has joined the two Airbus ACJs that Boutsen Aviation has under its financial and operational control. All three aircraft are now based in Stuttgart, where they are operated by DC Aviation and are available for charter.
Michael Kuhn, ceo of DC Aviation, added: "We are very pleased to add this G550 to our fleet of managed aircraft. The demand for charter in this segment is high."
