ExecuJet expands and earns safety award in South Africa
ExecuJet South Africa is celebrating its charter fleet expansion and growing recognition of the company's outstanding safety standards.
Luxaviation vice president, Africa Gavin Kiggen.

ExecuJet South Africa, part of the Luxaviation Group, has added a Bombardier Global Express to its charter fleet, to be based at Lanseria International airport, near Johannesburg. The aircraft can carry up to 13 passengers and offers a range of 4,800 nautical miles.

Luxaviation vice president, Africa Gavin Kiggen says: “Like all Bombardier business jets, the Global Express is an exceptional aircraft. We know the large cabin comfort and range will be highly attractive to charter customers across Africa.”

The continuing expansion of ExecuJet South Africa's fleet is being matched by the company's growing reputation for safety excellence. In September 2021, South Africa's Litson & Associates (L&A) confirmed a Silver Aviation Safety Award for ExecuJet South Africa. On 4 August this year, the award was elevated to the Gold level.

Kiggen adds: “This new Gold award recognises our high aviation safety standards over a number of years and reflects the results of L&A reviews. We are very proud of our long term safety record and delighted to receive further industry recognition of our very high standards with this award. From flight and ground operations to maintenance and training, safety is now and will always be our top priority.”

Looking ahead, fleet expansion and safety will be two of many key topics for discussion during the Africa Aerospace & Defence show in September this year. The event, which ExecuJet Africa is sponsoring, is being held at the Air Force Base Waterkloof in Tshwane, South Africa. ExecuJet's static display will showcase some of the company's most in-demand charter aircraft based in Africa.

Kiggen says: “This timely show arrives as our company, and indeed our industry, is gearing up for even more important and exciting opportunities ahead. Our team will be on hand to discuss our established portfolio of aviation services, from aircraft management and insurance, corporate aircraft charter, fixed base operations, aircraft sales, cargo charter and unmanned aerial vehicles to our range of luxury travel experiences and concierge services.”
