"Established as a key player in private aviation in Benelux, we significantly strengthened our European network with the launch of operations in the Netherlands," Paindavin says. "After the preparatory phase in mid-2009, we are ready today to claim our share of the Dutch charter market. We have based three types of private jets in the Netherlands - the Mustang, the Challenger 604 and the Falcon 50EX."
He points out that more than 2,000 destinations can be reached within Europe and beyond from Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
Paindavin says two four-seat Mustangs operate from bases in Rotterdam, Antwerp and Luxembourg while a Falcon 50 configured for eight passengers is based at Schiphol Amsterdam. "The Challenger 604 which will service Holland offers a spacious and luxurious cabin and is configured for 12 passengers."
FlyingGroup manages a fleet of 25 private jets and operates from airports including Antwerp, Cannes, Paris and Luxembourg.
