Germany's DC Aviation will bring a new dimension to its long haul capability with the addition of two Legacy 650s. Steffen Fries, ceo, says: "We are extremely proud to be one of the first European charter providers to welcome two Legacy 650s into our fleet. We plan to use this new aircraft model to continue the expansion of our long haul fleet, as well as our international flight service. This aircraft will enable us to offer comfortable, non-stop flights on business routes such as London-Dubai or Dubai-Singapore." Germany's DC Aviation will bring a new dimension to its long haul capability with the addition of two Legacy 650s.
The first Legacy 650 is due for delivery in the final quarter of 2010, with the second aircraft due to arrive in 2011. Fries says: "The Legacy's performance offers advantages for air traffic controllers, and ultimately our operations."
DC Aviation, he points out, already operates two Legacy 600s on long-haul charter flights. Including managed aircraft, DC Aviation has around 20 business jets for charter. Fries says: "As business people without a personal jet currently do not want to commit themselves to one business jet operator with long-term contracts or 25 hour jet cards, DC Aviation has developed a special frequent flyer programme for charter customers. In the 'DC Aviation Loyalty Club', flights become less expensive the more frequently a customer flies in central Europe. In addition, positioning costs will also be waived in the selected 'loyalty region'."
Fries says the Legacy 650s will complement a diverse fleet ranging from the short haul Learjet 45XR to the long range jet Gulfstream 550 and four A319s with modified 19-seat vip seating plans or a 48-seat vip configuration. DC Aviation GmbH was formed as a result of the merger of Cirrus Aviation and DaimlerChrysler Aviation.
