2019 is year of fleet growth for Luxaviation
Luxaviation has added one new aircraft to its managed fleet every month so far this year, as it prepares to meet the growing global demand for its management services.
A stream of aircraft are joining the Luxaviation fleet this year.

Luxaviation is adding a Bombardier Global Express XRS and a Global 5000 to its managed fleet in Europe. This makes a total of nine new jets over the last nine months. Luxaviation Europe vice president Niclas von Planta says: “Having an average of one aircraft joining our managed fleet every month attests to the care and expertise shown by our staff members for each client, whether they're new to Luxaviation or have a long-standing relationship with us.” Both aircraft are to be privately operated and the AOC is undisclosed.

“Our aircraft management service provides all the benefits of ownership, without the added hassle of managing operations,” adds von Planta. “This gives our customers greater efficiencies and lower costs than acting as an individual. Plus, they can enjoy peace of mind knowing that their aircraft's compliance, maintenance and upkeep is being taken care of by skilled, experienced practitioners.

“As business jet ownership levels increase worldwide, we are fully prepared to meet the growing demand for aircraft management, no matter where our customers are based across the globe.”

Of the other new jets introduced this year, a Gulfstream V, Gulfstream 650, Global 7500 and a Falcon 8X are privately operated, while the Challenger 650 based at Vnukovo and the Phenom 300 based at Zurich, are both under Swiss AOC. A Global Express is also assigned a floating base under a Danish AOC.

Luxaviation is comprised of Luxaviation Helicopters, Starspeed and business aviation entities such as ExecuJet. The group offers services including aircraft management for private and commercially registered aircraft, charter, maintenance and fixed-base operations.
