Private aircraft operator Luxaviation Group is celebrating its fleet expansion in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. The company will highlight its achievements in the region, along with its plans, at the Avalon 2023 Australian International Airshow, to be held on 28 February to 5 March.
“We’re excited to be attending Avalon 2023 when our business is growing so strongly in the APAC region,” said Darren McGoldrick, vice president, APAC, Luxaviation Group. “Our fleet has expanded in recent months, and we have further deliveries in the pipeline. We added a Dassault Falcon 2000LX to our Australian charter fleet and we’ve just added two Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft – since December 2022, one of which will be available for charter.”
“Across Asia our managed fleet is expanding also,” McGoldrick continued. “We’ve added a Dassault Falcon 7X and are in the process of delivering a Dassault Falcon 8X to our Malaysian fleet. In Singapore we have added a Hawker Beechcraft 900XP and a Global 6000 in the last two months.”
McGoldrick reported that Luxaviation Group has bounced back impressively from the pandemic, with record charter hours and FBO movements in the APAC region in 2022. “The most pleasing aspect of the recovery has been the number of first-time passengers we have welcomed to fly in our aircraft, many of whom rapidly became repeat customers,” he said. “Clients are increasingly moving away from airlines as they clearly see the benefits of business aviation, from the time savings and privacy to the security and flexibility of travel.”
Patrick Hansen, CEO, Luxaviation Group, added: “After a successful 2022, Luxaviation Group is optimistic about the year ahead. We look forward to welcoming returning business and making the most of new opportunities, particularly as post-pandemic industry recovery accelerates across the region.”
