Challenger 300 performance pleases Avag Air clients
Avag Air GmbH's Hubert Lindenthaler says the charter operator's business has benefited from a brand new Challenger 300 recently brought into service.

Avag Air GmbH's Hubert Lindenthaler says the charter operator's business has benefited from a brand new Challenger 300 recently brought into service. "It is basically a corporate flight department aircraft but we do third party charter as well," he explains. "The aircraft is good for operation worldwide and has attracted custom from both business executives and celebrities."

Lindenthaler adds: "The aircraft was chosen due to the excellent performance, range and cabin size and for economic reasons."

Avag Air, which employs four full-time pilots and some freelance flight attendants, has mapped out a stable business plan. "We are not anticipating any new orders for aircraft for the next two years," Lindenthaler explains. "Company policy is that we will replace the aircraft within warranty. This is our 16th jet aircraft since 1972!" Traditionally Avag Air always buys brand new aircraft, he says.
