Zenith Aviation, based at London Biggin Hill airport in the UK, has purchased a further two Learjet 75 aircraft. The operator has been flying Learjets since 1999 and last year took delivery of its first two LR75s. The latest arrivals will be positioned in the UK.
“We have benefitted significantly from adding the first two Learjet 75 aircraft to our fleet, almost doubling our hours flown in 2017,” states MD Stuart Mulholland. “We're extremely happy with their performance and more clients are requesting the Learjet brand, re-energising the demand for the traditional double club, eight-seat configuration. With the additional aircraft arriving next year, we look forward to being able to satisfy our ever-increasing demand in 2018.”
Around 225 Learjets are currently in service in the EMEA region.
“It's very clear that the impressive capabilities of our Learjet 75 business jet, along with Zenith Aviation's commitment to impeccable service, are a winning combination with customers,” says Bombardier VP of sales for Europe, Russia and CIS, Christophe Degoumois. “We were proud to celebrate our 100th Learjet 75 delivery in June, and this remarkable aircraft will continue to lead the way by bringing advanced large jet features to the light and super light jet segments.”
Zenith reported a considerable increase in hours flown in the first six months of 2017, including a 37 per cent year-on-year increase in June and an 83 per cent increase between January and June. Mulholland expects to add at least two further aircraft in the super-light category during the first quarter of 2018.
