DC Aviation of Stuttgart, Germany, has increased its fleet with five additional medium range and long range business jets. These include a Gulfstream G550, a Dassault Falcon 900 and a Dassault 7X. The company, which employs over 330 staff, believes it is the largest German business aviation operator and the latest acquisitions strengthen this status.
Michael Kuhn, md, says: “This fleet expansion and the resulting additional capacities put us in a position to respond on a top-notch level to growing charter demand in this segment. At the same time we are, of course, very happy about the trust our clients have in us with regard to aircraft management.”
DC Aviation now has a total of 17 long range jets and 12 medium range or short range jets, and also operates out of Dubai and Zurich. Having acquired the Swiss provider Jet-Link and its daughter Heli-Link, both headquartered in Zurich, further fleet growth is now expected. DC has taken on Heli-Link's Eurocopter EC155B1 as part of the deal, with vip configuration for up to eight passengers.
