Legacy 650 to offer options from EU floating base
Luxaviation UK is well-positioned to fly customers all over Europe and beyond with its latest Legacy 650, which it plans to base throughout the continent. It has the legs to reach Dubai from London and can seat up to 13.
The latest delivery is Luxaviation's second Legacy 650.

Luxaviation UK has added a fifth Embraer Legacy 600/650 to its managed fleet, the company's second Legacy 650.

The Legacy will operate from a floating base around Europe and is now available for full charter services with a full-time crew.

George Galanopoulos, CEO and head of charter sales for the Luxaviation Group, says: “With our recent uptick in enquiries and bookings for private travel in Europe, the arrival of the Legacy 650 to our fleet is very welcome, especially following the announcements in play on air bridges to European countries.

“This summer is already looking a lot more promising as clients confirm and book their travel plans for the school holiday period. We're seeing an influx of new clients to private aviation, particularly those who have never or rarely used private jets before, attracted by the lowered health risk when flying privately and put off by limited commercial airline schedules.

“The Legacy 650 is a highly desirable long range jet and has ample room for bigger groups of passengers, along with an impressive luggage capacity compared to other models. We're expecting to see this aircraft spend the majority of its time in London, Tel Aviv and in the Mediterranean, three popular destinations for our leisure clients.”

The Legacy 650 is suitable for up to 13 passengers, plus three crew members, and is capable of flying 3,900 nm, the equivalent of London to Dubai. The aircraft is marketed and operated by Luxaviation UK on Luxaviation Luxembourg's AOC.

Galanopoulos continues: “As part of the Luxaviation Group, we are in a very special position to be able to offer aircraft owners a choice of a number of European and global AOCs including Luxembourg, the UK, Germany, Switzerland, France, Portugal, San Marino and Malta. With commercial offices worldwide, we are able to maximise the aircraft's charter sales for our owners who wish to offset some of their costs. Each aircraft is placed with a local entity, ensuring that the owner is not one of many, and that they get the personal service, attention to detail and 'family business' approach to aircraft management that they need and value.”
