London Executive picks up third BACA award
London Executive Aviation has been judged 'best general aviation operator' for a third time in the prestigious Baltic Air Charter Association Excellence Awards.

London Executive Aviation has been judged 'best general aviation operator' for a third time in the prestigious Baltic Air Charter Association Excellence Awards.

The award was decided by BACA members, who were asked to nominate the organisations they consider best in class. BACA represents more than 125 companies, including air brokers, charter airlines, airports, business aircraft operators, consultants and others involved in air charter, scheduled flying and air cargo.

LEA md George Galanopoulos says: "We are absolutely delighted to receive this recognition from our respected industry colleagues, the most demanding group of judges one could imagine. Despite the toughest industry recession ever, LEA has continued to invest right across its business – in our fleet, our service provision and in training and technology. Today's award is a welcome vindication of our commitment to excellence."

BACA members chose Titan Airways as 'best passenger charter airline'; Rizon Jet as best handling agent/FBO; and gave its 'global excellence award' to Avinode.

The latter is awarded to an overseas company that has performed and delivered above and beyond the call of duty. "Avinode is delighted to receive this award," says md Oliver King. "For 10 years, we have combined cutting edge technology to bring buyers and sellers of business aviation across Europe together to fulfill our company mission of making air charter available. Business aviation is an important industry in Europe and Avinode is proud to have been recognised by the members of BACA in this way."
