Aeronexus, headquartered in South Africa, is celebrating the first anniversary of its Boeing 767-300ER operations. Since founders Gavin Harrison and Sven Petersen introduced the B767-300ER to the Aeronexus fleet in February 2016, the aircraft has completed a busy year of diverse charter activity, making good use of its worldwide AOC.

The 767 has recently finished a five-week Asia Pacific tour with rock band Guns N' Roses, for which the livery of the aircraft was repainted to match the band's artwork. After several stops in Bangkok, Tokyo, Singapore and Australasia, the aircraft travelled to Dubai World Central before returning to its home base at London Stansted.

Before the aircraft entered service in February 2016, the operator selected Starling Aerospace to undertake a major cabin refurbish-ment project, which saw the aircraft completely stripped, refurbished and refitted with 96 lie-flat Sicma Zodiac seats in a six-abreast layout. Upholstered with cream leather, each seat now offers a 73-inch seat pitch and power for laptops, phones and tablets. An AdonisOne inflight entertainment system was also installed, enabling passengers to watch movies, listen to music, read magazines and follow their flight on a live route map.

“The client response to our offering has been extremely positive,” states head of sales and marketing Gareth Evans. “Over the last 12 months, our B767-300ER has flown to numerous new destinations, including Buenos Aires, Auckland and Wellington. This year, some more exciting assignments are coming up, including charters to the Far East and USA for Premiership football teams, plus a 23-day tour of South America, Cuba and the Falkland Islands on behalf of Prestige Holidays.

“We attribute this success to our attention to detail and proven experience in the wide-body market, having incorporated our first B767 model in 2010. It has also been helpful that we can call on the great expertise at Stansted's Diamond Hangar to cover operations, catering and executive handling.”
