K5-Aviation in Germany will be among the first few operators in the world to introduce Bombardier Aviation's extra long-range Global 7500 to the charter market. The K5-Aviation management team is scheduled to take delivery of the aircraft in Montreal this August. With a 7,700 nm range, 16 hours flying time and a max speed of Mach 0.925, the aircraft will be the German company's third VIP large cabin aircraft available for charter, joining two ACJs.
The Global 7500 will be based out of Munich International airport, fitted with 14 VIP seats. K5's aircraft will be the first Global 7500 with a shower. Its spacious cabin will also feature a full-size galley and four cabin zones including a bedroom in the rear. Ka-band internet in combination with Lufthansa Technik's ‘nice’ entertainment system for inflight streaming and video conferencing will add to the passenger experience.
“We are very excited to be introducing this stunning new aircraft under our management and AOC; the charter brokers we work closely with are eagerly awaiting it too,” comments accountable manager Luca Madone.
“The transoceanic capable business jet will open up a wealth of new city pairs for our discerning clientele that we haven't been able to reach before, including direct routes from Miami to Dubai,” adds head of charter sales Lorenz Baur.
K5 will also be rolling out a new loyalty 'Privilege Status' category for its regular clients. The status offers such perks as no cancellation fees for bookings up to 12 hours before travel and other benefits for regular customers. The loyalty programme will be attractive to K5-Aviation clients, with the company also introducing another new type, a brand new Airbus ACJ319neo in the first quarter of 2020. The aircraft, powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engines, made its maiden flight from Hamburg on 24 April.
