Luxaviation has taken delivery of a Phenom 300, the first aircraft of its type to enter the group. The company is based in Luxembourg and claims to be the second largest business aviation operator in the world, with responsibility for a combined fleet of over 250 business aircraft, including 18 Embraer jets.
Ceo Patrick Hansen says: “The integration of the Embraer Phenom 300 type aircraft into our 250-strong fleet allows us to diversify and develop what we offer, mainly for growing markets and specifically for the fast-growing Asian business jet market. It responds to client need for a diverse fleet providing high flexibility.”
The Phenom 300 is the most delivered business jet for the second year in a row. The aircraft is in operation in more than 20 countries and has accumulated over 200,000 flight hours. In five years of operation, the global fleet has surpassed the 250 aircraft mark, having reportedly attained at least half of the market share in the light jet category.
