Oryx brings managed Challenger onboard for charter
London-based aircraft management and charter company Oryx Jet has added a Challenger 604 to its managed fleet of business jets.

London-based aircraft management and charter company Oryx Jet has added a Challenger 604 to its managed fleet of business jets.

The aircraft entered service in September and is managed from Oryx Jet's headquarters within affiliated partner Rizon Jet's FBO/MRO facility at Biggin Hill airport. "This latest addition to our growing fleet boasts one of the widest and quietest cabins in its class and provides an ideal environment for in-flight business meetings or relaxation," the company says.

Mike Russell, ceo, is delighted with the new arrival: "We are excited to welcome the Challenger to our growing fleet, as it further expands our long range capabilities and allows us to continue to offer our clients unparalleled vip service."

The Challenger 604 can accommodate up to 10 people and is equipped with on-board entertainment and a satellite telephone. It has transcontinental range and is capable of flying non-stop from London to New York.

Oryx Jet's existing Hawker and Falcon 50 fleet is also complemented by single and twin turbine engine helicopters. It says it is one of an elite group of UK aircraft operators that can fly with a paperless cockpit, and its charter aviation service was this year recognised as 'best charter' in Europe in The Business Destinations 2012 awards.

"Our business is gaining a reputation for excellence and we are constantly striving to improve our service levels and our customer experience," adds Russell. "The aircraft management arm of our business is going from strength to strength, and we are confident this latest addition to our fleet will prove a popular choice for business and leisure travellers."
