ExecuJet South Africa, a subsidiary of the Luxaviation Group, is celebrating the expansion of its charter fleet and the growing recognition of the company’s exceptional safety standards.
ExecuJet added a Bombardier Global Express to its charter fleet, which will be based at Lanseria International Airport near Johannesburg. The aircraft has a range of 4,800 nautical miles and can carry up to 13 passengers.
“Like all Bombardier business jets, the Global Express is an exceptional aircraft,” says Gavin Kiggen, Luxaviation’s Vice President, Africa. We are confident that the large-cabin comfort and range will appeal to charter customers throughout Africa.”
ExecuJet South Africa’s fleet expansion is being matched by the company’s growing reputation for safety excellence.
Litson & Associates (L&A) of South Africa confirmed a Silver Aviation Safety Award for ExecuJet South Africa in September 2021. The award was upgraded to Gold status on August 4, this year.
“This new Gold award recognizes our high aviation safety standards over many years and reflects the results of L&A reviews,” Kiggen says.
“We are very proud of our long-term safety record and delighted to receive this award as further industry recognition of our very high standards.” Safety is now and will always be our top priority, from flight and ground operations to maintenance and training.”
Looking ahead, fleet expansion and safety will be two of many key topics of discussion at this year’s ‘Africa Aerospace & Defence show, which will take place from September 21-25.
ExecuJet Africa is sponsoring the event, which is taking place at the Air Force Base Waterkloof in the South African city of Tshwane. ExecuJet’s static display will feature some of the company’s most popular charter planes based in Africa.
“This timely show arrives as our company, and indeed our industry, is gearing up for even more important and exciting opportunities ahead,” Kiggen continues. Our team will be available to discuss our established portfolio of aviation services, which includes everything from aircraft management and insurance to corporate aircraft charter, fixed-base operations, aircraft sales, cargo charter, and unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as our luxury travel experiences and concierge services.
