Concierge offers Challenger 300 for charter

Concierge Aviation has taken delivery of a Challenger 300 aircraft to enhance its managed fleet. The aircraft will be based at Bristol and is available for charter.

“This delivery was the culmination of a two-and-a-half year project with the owner of the aircraft,” says md Glen Smith. “We completed operational evaluations of several different models to ensure we achieved the best balance of range, performance, cabin space and acquisition price before signing for the 300 at EBACE 2012. Twelve months later Bombardier delivered this high specification aircraft on schedule. The quality of service from the sales and delivery team has been exceptional.”

Smith also speaks of the extended AOC which has been granted: “Our AOC now includes north and south America, Africa and the Far East, offering our clients a far wider range of non-stop destinations.

“Our team has worked tirelessly on this project and we will now focus on ensuring we maintain our level of service delivery in this new market.”

Concierge chief pilot Bryan Treadgold adds: “We are hugely impressed with the capability and operation of this aircraft and have seen it consistently meet the published performance figures over a variety of sectors.”
