Available for charter from January 2024, the Praetor 600 will be based at London Biggin Hill Airport. The aircraft has capacity for up to nine passengers and three crew members, and can fly at 863km/h.
“Demand for super-midsize jets has rapidly increased,” said George Galanopoulos, CEO of Luxaviation UK. “The Praetor 600 is an exciting addition to our fleet, and we are looking forward to showing this technically advanced aircraft off to our charter customers. We’ve long supported our friends at London Biggin Hill and its location makes it the perfect base to deliver quick flight access for clients based in London and the Southeast.”
The aircraft has a non-stop range of 4,000 nautical miles and can fly from a runway as short as 3,000ft, facilitating flights to popular intercontinental routes such as London to New York or Dubai, as well as São Paulo to Miami.
“We are delighted to welcome the Praetor 600 to our airport, a valuable addition to Luxaviation’s growing fleet,” said Robert Walters, commercial director at London Biggin Hill Airport. “We look forward to supporting the team with a range of bespoke services, to further enhance the exemplary experiences we provide for our passengers, crew and charter customers.”
The Luxaviation Group has been tailoring private travel experiences for a global clientele since 1964. It was founded by André Ganshof van der Meersch, a Belgian entrepreneur, pilot and nobleman.
“This addition to our fleet is a fitting end to 2023 and sets us off to an exciting year ahead,” said Patrick Hansen, CEO, Luxaviation Group. “Understanding our clients’ needs and expectations is an essential part of private charter, and ensuring we can meet their aircraft needs is paramount. We are looking forward to 2024 being a year of opportunity and further growth globally.”
