Munich-based K5-Aviation has launched a charter sales department based in Zug, Switzerland, led by accountable manager Luca Madone and head of charter sales Lorenz Baur.

The company specialises in managing ACJs and Bombardier Global types, and currently offers the long range ACJ319 and ACJ318 for charter. The ACJ319 holds an endurance world record and is able to fly up to 12-and-a-half hours non-stop, while the newly-refurbished ACJ318 has a nine-hour range and can transport 80 standard suitcases, more than three times the capacity of the ACJ319.

K5 also anticipates becoming one of the first commercial operators of the Global 7500 when it takes delivery of the model next year.
