XLS+ proves popular with yacht owners

Eurojet Aviation says that the new Citation XLS+ which is it managing has enjoyed a healthy number of charters over the summer months. The aircraft has one of the largest cabins in its class and can accommodate up to eight passengers, with wi-fi and fully reclining seats. The rest of Eurojet's mixed fleet is comprised of Citation Bravos, Excels and XLS aircraft. Some of these models are owned while some are managed.

Md Graeme Campbell enthuses about the latest aircraft: “With its combination of cabin size, range and reliability, the XLS+ is one of the most popular private jets available and is well suited to the European market. It has performed extremely well and is popular with passengers and industry professionals. The aircraft was a regular visitor to the popular yacht and second-home locations during the summer months, and we are now preparing for a busy winter ski season.”

In addition, the industry recognised Eurojet Aviation's services at the BACA excellence awards in London's Guildhall. The company's business aviation centre in Birmingham, UK, which includes 41,000 sq ft hangarage and full service FBO, was named as the best handling agent/FBO at the event.

Campbell reflects on this: “In addition to growing our aircraft fleet, we are delighted to have received this globally-recognised award from BACA. We are constantly looking at ways to improve our client services to offer the highest standards of travel. To have received this endorsement from the world's largest network for the air charter market just 18 months after opening at Birmingham is a tribute to the dedication and hard work of all our staff.

“We are now actively focusing on avenues to expand our FBO network and are working with a range of partners to explore acquisition opportunities in the UK and Europe.”
