Belgium and Netherlands-based ASL Group has introduced eight new aircraft to its management and charter fleet, supporting the growing demand for private jet activities and services in Europe. The group's fleet now surpasses 40 aircraft in operation.

Despite the heavy impact on commercial aviation and airline activities of the COVID-19 pandemic, ASL is currently in the process of adding eight aircraft to its fleet, of which most will be added onto the company's two AOCs and offered to the charter market. The company has experienced an increasing demand for charter flights as well as for aircraft acquisition and management services over the last couple of months, as the offer for commercial airline services is heavily impacted by the pandemic.

“This is a very exciting moment for our company, especially in these challenging times that are deeply affecting the travel industry, and I am very proud of the incredible dedication of our teams who, despite the odds, are allowing our company to keep on growing at a sustained pace,” says Philippe Bodson, CEO of ASL Group. “I am thrilled and extremely honoured to welcome our very first Falcon 7X, which marks a very important milestone in the development of our activities and allows ASL Group to enter the ultra long range and heavy jet segment of the market. And in the meantime, the addition of other aircraft such as the Embraer Legacy 500 and an amazingly refurbished Embraer Legacy 600 clearly confirms the success of our operation in the short and medium haul segments.”

In total, ASL is adding an Eindhoven-based Falcon 7X and Legacy 600, two Legacy 500s based in Kortrijk and Antwerp, a Bucharest-based Citation Sovereign, two Antwerp-based Citation Mustangs and an Antwerp-based PC-12NG.
