For the first time, a business jet lands on the grass runway of the airport closest to the world-famous Italian city of Venice- A premiere for Venice-Lido! The flight aboard a PC-24 provides the fastest connection ever to Venice and many other cities.

The Venice-Lido city airport is located about three kilometres east of the city centre on the Lido di Venezia. The PC-24 landed safely on the grass runway 05/23 of just under 1000 metres. The city centre is just a few minutes from the airport. The PC-24 is the only business jet in the world to be able to fly into such airfields. The combination of high cruising speed and ability to use short strips – and even unpaved runways – delivers a whole new level of mobility and time savings.

Twice as many airfields – only with the PC-24

The PC-24’s outstanding performance on short and unpaved runways opens up an incredible spectrum of flexibility and new possibilities. It means the PC-24 gives you access to almost twice as many airfields worldwide compared to other business jets currently on the market. With the PC-24, which can operate in and out of small airfields, you can fly closer to your final destination, thereby avoiding the usual formalities at large airports and reducing transfers on the ground to an absolute minimum, saving valuable time.

Developed and certified for rough field strips

From the outset, the PC-24 was developed for use on rough field strips. This means the PC-24 is the first business jet to be able to take off from and land on dry sand and gravel, as well as grass, wet earth and snow. All that makes the PC-24 the world’s most flexible business jet.

Over 100 PC-24s already in service 

Besides its unique takeoff and landing capabilities, the PC-24 also boasts an exceptionally spacious cabin whose interior can be modified to suit personal requirements. The current fleet of over 100 PC-24s flies countless missions daily on every continent: as a medevac aircraft in Australia and Alaska, for example, as a business jet in the USA and for a German automobile manufacturer, as a government aircraft in South Africa and also for the Swiss government.
