King Air 260 joins ExecuJet Africa charter fleet
The King Air 260 will provide charter opportunities across Africa from its base at Lanseria International airport. Popular destinations could include Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe.
New from the factory in 2022, it can carry up to eight passengers.

ExecuJet Africa, part of the Luxaviation Group, is adding a new Beechcraft King Air 260 to its fleet.

Luxaviation’s vice president, Africa, Gavin Kiggen says: “The Beechcraft King Air 260 is such a popular aircraft with the business community globally, and we'll be offering this turboprop for charter in Africa for the first time. New from the factory in 2022 and able to carry up to eight passengers, the aircraft will be based at Lanseria International airport, near Johannesburg. From there, we're expecting high demand for flights to locations including Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. We also have a long-range jet from the Bombardier series joining later this year and we know the large cabin comfort and range will be highly attractive to charter customers across Africa.”
