Luxaviation UK, the UK’s largest private jet charter operator, is welcoming a Bombardier Challenger 604 to its fleet, available for charter from April 2017.

The Challenger 604 (G-MOCL) will be based at Athens International Airport with a full-time crew, allowing for last-minute charter requests. Purchased by an existing Luxaviation UK customer for private and charter use, it will be available for charter without the owner’s release. The aircraft was fitted with new interiors and exteriors in 2015.

George Galanopoulos, managing director, Luxaviation UK, says:

“There is high demand for business aviation in Southeast Europe but an inadequate supply of quality aircraft. The owner purchased the aircraft to help counter that shortage. The Greek economy may continue to struggle, but the business aviation market remains prominent as wealthy individuals and visitors require transportation during the tourist season; the same applies to the neighboring Balkan countries. The Athens-based Challenger 604 is an excellent addition to our fleet, representing a great opportunity for us to reach out to more clients in the region.

“At Luxaviation UK we offer a state-of-the-art, luxury experience that our clients expect from private jet travel and this fleet addition epitomizes our key values of going above and beyond.”

The Challenger 604 can accommodate up to 11 passengers and 3 crew members, with a maximum flying distance of 4,000 nm (7,410 km). Its track record for dependability and reliability makes it the best-selling jet in its class; with standing space of more than six feet, it provides superior comfort for passengers and crew.

In addition to the Challenger 604 and the recently added Challenger 350 and Falcon 2000LXS, the 24-strong Luxaviation UK fleet also includes eight Embraer Legacy 600/650s, four Cessna Citation Excels, four Citation Mustangs and more. The Challenger 604 will become part of the Luxaviation Group’s global fleet of more than 260 aircraft.
