MHS adds Falcon 2000LXS to 13-strong fleet

Germany-based aircraft management company MHS Aviation has acquired a new Falcon 2000LXS aircraft. It joins two 2000LX aircraft already available for charter. The acquisition reflects a major commitment on the part of MHS to expand service to its clients and strengthens the company’s position as a key 2000 series operator and charter provider.

CEO Steffen Fries lauds the performance, comfort, reliability and economy of the aircraft family: “These are perhaps the ideal charter jets, considering their flexibility to carry large teams and to do so economically over short and long distances, and into and out of short fields when necessary. Our clients love them.”

The company’s 2000 series aircraft fly up to 1,000 hours each per year, which it says is a high utilisation rate for a business jet.

MHS selected the 2000LXS for its comfortable cabin and range of 4,000 nm. The operator conducts frequent transatlantic flights with the aircraft and considers it to provide the most price-efficient service on these long routes. It has the lowest direct operating cost in its class and second-to-none operational performance, combined with high reliability, which allows high utilisation. Falcons are known to be able to operate from short runways, often those close to city centres, while cruising comfortably at high speeds en route.
