EAS adds Global XRS to expand managed fleet
Lebanon's Executive Aircraft Services (EAS) has added a new Global XRS to its managed fleet.

Lebanon's Executive Aircraft Services (EAS) has added a new Global XRS to its managed fleet. Nael Chehab, Operations and Sales Manager, says: "We plan to add more aircraft to our managed fleet, be it for private use or for commercial under our AOC. Beirut is a dynamic platform for general aviation. It has seen a perpetual increase in GA movements throughout the past year."

The EAS fleet includes a Hawker 800XP, a Challenger 300, an Embraer Legacy, a Global XRS and a Hawker 700.

The Hawker 800XP and 700 are operated for third party charter. Chehab says: "Hawkers were chosen due to our vast experience with this type of aircraft and its range and reliability that enable it to fly from Beirut to London all year round. It has good passenger capacity and also fits well into our maintenance capabilities."

EAS opened a 1,764 sq. m. hangar in February 2009 and its engineers are trained at Flight Safety USA and CAE Dubai.

Chehab says: "Our crew gathers PICs with many years of experience in general aviation operation The company was formed in 1996 but started operating in 2004 with the charter of a Hawker 700. We first started providing ground handling in Beirut and today, we moved up to a leading position in this sector with up to 48 per cent market share. In December 2008, we acquired the Hawker 800XP to keep up with the evolving market and our customers' demands. We started managing flights in 2005 and today we have a fleet of five aircrafts."

EAS operates brand new ground handling equipment including an electrical JetPorter, FMC stairs, Tiger Tug and TLD belt loader.
