Vertis Aviation has added a newly refurbished Embraer Legacy 600 to its exclusive charter management programme. The aircraft is based in Athens, Greece, has a Greek AOC, and is suitable for flights up to seven hours.
As travel restrictions lift, Vertis anticipates the aircraft will be in high demand with families requiring a large cabin and lots of luggage space, musicians on tour needing to move between European locations, and corporate customers needing space and a productive environment.
“Legacy aircraft are extremely popular for group charters in Europe, which is why we’re pleased to add this model to our portfolio,” said James Foster, COO at Vertis. “We know that this particular aircraft will be welcomed by a new set of customers who are transitioning to business aviation as they recognise the advantages it brings.”
“These clients seek aircraft that can meet the needs of flexible itineraries, while optimising travel budgets,” Foster continued. “With our boutique approach and the Legacy 600 capabilities, customers will be assured of streamlined, discrete service wrapped up in efficient operations and affordability.”
The aircraft is operated by Marathon Airlines, a recently launched operator run by aviation veterans.
Vertis Aviation is a launch customer of Paynode, a multicurrency payment platform provided by the online charter marketplace Avinode. The Legacy 600 will be enrolled into the system along with a Gulfstream G450 offered by Vertis Aviation.
“We are pleased to have the Legacy 600 form part of the Paynode system and believe it will help demystify the often overly complex transaction part of the charter equation, so making it even more attractive to customers,” said Foster.
The Vertis team markets a select portfolio of business aircraft including a Global 6000, Global 5000, Gulfstream G450 and a Challenger 350.
