 Luxaviation is expanding its UK fleet with an Embraer Praetor 600.

Available for charter from January 2024, the Praetor 600 will be the first of its kind to be based at London Biggin Hill airport. The aircraft has capacity for up to nine passengers and three crew members, and can fly at speeds of 863km/h. It has a non-stop range of 4,000nm (4,600 miles) and can fly from a runway as short as 3,000ft, facilitating flights to popular intercontinental routes such as London to New York or Dubai, as well as São Paulo to Miami.

CEO George Galanopoulos says: "Demand for super-midsize jets has rapidly increased. The Praetor 600 is an exciting addition to our fleet, and we are looking forward to showing this technically advanced aircraft off to our charter customers. We've long supported our friends at London Biggin Hill, and its location makes it the perfect base to deliver quick flight access for clients based in London and the south east.

"We have refurbished the aircraft, and passengers can experience seamless onboard wi-fi, touchscreen cabin controls and immersive audio and video streaming, promising unrivalled levels of comfort and inflight entertainment. The aircraft's extensive range means we can fly our clients to mid and long-haul destinations without the need to refuel. Fully equipped and ultra-quiet, the Praetor 600 is perfect for those looking to work, relax or travel with family and friends."

Robert Walters, commercial director at London Biggin Hill airport, adds: "We are delighted to welcome the Praetor 600 to our airport, a valuable addition to Luxaviation's growing fleet. We look forward to supporting the team with a range of bespoke services to further enhance the exemplary experiences we provide for our passengers, crew and charter customers."

Patrick Hansen, CEO, Luxaviation Group says: "This addition to our fleet is a fitting end to 2023 and sets us off to an exciting year ahead. Understanding our clients' needs and expectations is an essential part of private charter, and ensuring we are able to meet their aircraft needs is paramount. We are looking forward to 2024 being a year of opportunity and further growth globally."
