A new Bombardier Global 7500 and Embraer Legacy 650 have been added to Luxaviation Group’s global managed fleet.
The Global 7500 is the first aircraft of its model to be available for charter in the UK and will operate under Luxaviation’s UK AOC at London Luton Airport.
The Legacy 650 joins ExecuJet Africa, part of the Luxaviation Group, under Part 91. The aircraft will not be for commercial use.
“There is a really limited number of Global 7500s available for charter within Europe, but the demand is there, and the arrival of this new aircraft will meet the needs of our business and long-haul leisure clients, short- and longer-term,” said Niclas von Planta, vice president of ExecuJet Europe. “In this current pandemic, aircraft owners have been seeking experienced aircraft management companies, like us, to ensure their aircraft are managed with the upmost safety and hygiene regulations, especially when the aircraft is being used for charter.”
The Global 7500 is suitable for up to 17 passengers, is capable of flying 7,700 nautical miles (14,260km) and has a top speed of Mach 0.925.

With more than 1,300 employees, the group runs an around-the-clock operation on five continents.
