The Luxaviation Group has become the first operator to manage a Challenger 350 for a Belgian customer. The new addition to the Benelux market is available for immediate charter.
“We're delighted to welcome this exceptional aircraft to Luxaviation's fleet in Belgium,” says CEO of Luxaviation Belgium Hervé Laitat. “At Luxaviation, we have always set the bar very high for international business aviation operations, and our facilities in Belgium are a true reflection of this. Our ExecuJet Brussels FBO was the first to be certified by IS-BAH in the country, and we've just achieved IS-BAH Stage II certification, proving our team's dedication to safety and service excellence. We're looking forward to extending our renowned offering to the owner of Belgium's first Challenger 350.”
Bombardier's VP of sales for Europe Russia and the CIS Christophe Degoumois adds: “We are very pleased that Bombardier's best-selling Challenger 350 business jet has joined Luxaviation's fleet of aircraft. “With its impressive high-performance features, superior economics, unmatched cabin comfort and entertainment technology, the Challenger 350 aircraft is ideally suited for the European market.”
The Challenger 350 is able to climb to 43,000 ft and has a range of 3,200 nm, connecting Brussels to Dubai non-stop.
Recently awarded steep approach certifications by several international regulatory bodies, including EASA, FAA and TC, the CL350 can perform landings in difficult-to-access airfields including London City.
