Embraer Executive Jets' Legacy 450 has received approval to operate from La Mole airport, making it the largest business jet capable of providing charter air service into and out of the popular European vacation destination in St Tropez, France.

“The Legacy 450 provides a unique combination of advanced capabilities, operational flexibility, outstanding performance and greater cabin comfort to meet customers' business or travel needs,” says senior VP of sales for Europe, CIS and Africa Peter Griffith. The aircraft met strict performance requirements to operate on the airport's short runway, surrounded by dense terrain and intense air traffic, during evaluation flights performed by the first EASA-registered Legacy 450 operated by ASL of Brussels, Belgium. The results were validated by the French CAA.

“We have been differentiating ourselves in the market by providing a premium service that takes our customers when and where they need to go,” says Stéphane Ledermann, founder and CEO of Smart Air, which is managing the aircraft. “I'm glad we now can offer charter flights directly to La Mole in the largest business jet approved for this operation.”

The L450 can land at the airport with at least six passengers if weather is favourable, and can take off with eight passengers.
