Bombardier has delivered Belgium’s first Challenger 350, which will be operated by The Luxaviation Group. More than 600 Bombardier aircraft are in service in Europe.
“We are very pleased that Bombardier’s best-selling Challenger 350 business jet has joined Luxaviation’s fleet of aircraft,” said Christophe Degoumois, vice president of sales for Europe, Russia and CIS at Bombardier Business Aircraft. “With its impressive high-performance features, superior economics, unmatched cabin comfort and entertainment technology, the Challenger 350 aircraft is ideally suited to the European market.”
“We’re delighted to welcome this exceptional aircraft to Luxaviation’s fleet in Belgium,” said Hervé Laitat, CEO of Luxaviation Belgium. “At Luxaviation we have always set the bar very high for international business aviation operations, and our facilities in Belgium are a true reflection of this. Our ExecuJet Brussels FBO was the first to be certified by the International Standard of Business Air Handling (IS-BAH) in the country, and we’ve just achieved IS-BAH Stage II certification, proving our team’s dedication to safety and service excellence. We’re looking forward to extending our renowned offering to the owner of Belgium’s first Challenger 350.”
The super mid-size aircraft can accommodate 10 passengers, features a fully equipped galley and offers unrestricted access to the baggage compartment at all flight levels. With a range of 3,200 nautical miles (5,926km), the Challenger 350 can connect Brussels, Belgium, to Dubai, UAE, non-stop.
Recently awarded steep approach certifications by bodies including EASA, FAA and TC, the Challenger 350 allows operators to perform landings at airfields including London City Airport.
