Luxaviation UK has added an Embraer Legacy 600 to its managed fleet. Based at Istanbul Airport, the aircraft is now available for charter services with a full-time crew.

MD George Galanopoulos states: “Travel to and within Turkey and the Balkans continues to increase and the region is a popular destination for both our leisure and business clients. It is important that our fleet continues to reflect the needs and aspirations of our clients, and the addition of the Istanbul-based Legacy will enable us to fulfil more requests between Europe and the Middle East, two of the world's leading business aviation regions.

“We are always looking to extend the outstanding service offering that Luxaviation UK and the wider Luxaviation Group is renowned for; providing our client base with a growing number of flight options is a fantastic opportunity to develop existing relationships and harness new ones.”

The Legacy 600 is suitable for up to 13 passengers, plus three crew members, and can fly up to 3,400nm, roughly the equivalent of flying from London to Washington DC, USA.

The latest Legacy joins the operator's fleet of existing Legacys, Dassault Falcons, Bombardier Challengers, Citation Excels and Embraer Phenoms.
