Albinati Aeronautics, which has one of the largest fleets of Bombardier Globals in Switzerland, has added another Global 6000.

The 12-passenger aircraft can fly for up to 13 hours non-stop at high speed in a cabin well-equipped for business, entertainment and relaxation, and it will shortly be available for charter.

Albinati Aeronautics has a team of 130 staff looking after its fleet, and expects that the Global 6000 will have 20 per cent ad hoc availability. It has also noticed an uptick in staff wanting to join the company. “There has been a significant increase of applications received from candidates, including pilots, flight attendants, CAMO engineers and office staff who are willing to join us,” says founder and CEO Stefano Albinati. “The main reason expressed by applicants is that our company has become a reference in the industry, not only for its fleet of very recent and state-of-the-art aircraft but also for the high standards of our requirements in terms of professional competence as well as quality of services to be delivered daily.”

“We are completing our pilot training for the CAT II certification on our brand new Falcon 8X. In addition, all company departments are working on the quality and safety ARGUS audit, in order to obtain the platinum certificate.”
