Flyinggroup now has bases in Europe in four countries - Belgium, France, Luxembourg and Holland. Ben Paindavin, marketing and PR director, confirms: "Independent commercial offices in Rotterdam and Luxembourg are fully operational in addition to our existing offices in Antwerp, Cannes and Paris."
Willem de Kruif heads up Flyinggroup Netherlands which operates out of Rotterdam airport Jetcenter. He says: "The Dutch market has a lot of existing and new business opportunities. A Citation Excel and a Challenger 604 will be based in Rotterdam."
In Luxembourg Flyinggroup's base is equipped with offices and a hangar and staffed by nine employees. Bernard van Milders, president Flyinggroup says: "Luxembourg is a growing business market." Flyinggroup will base a Citation XLS+ and a Mustang at Luxembourg, and also offers line and ground maintenance services.
Flyinggroup also reports good demand for its newest fleet addition, a Citation Sovereign. The aircraft is configured for nine passengers and mainly operates out of Belgium's Antwerp airport. Paindavin says: "The Sovereign offers the business traveller a simple proposition: cover much more ground than the competition in far greater comfort for a competitive price."
