ExecuJet increases managed fleet in Africa


ExecuJet Aviation Group is expanding the company’s managed fleet in Africa with the addition of a Falcon 900B, Hawker 800 and Bombardier Challenger 604.

The newly refurbished Falcon 900B will be based in Luanda, Angola, a first for ExecuJet, while the other two aircraft will be located at Lanseria International Airport, Johannesburg. The Hawker 800 and Bombardier Challenger 604 aircraft will both be available for charter.

Gavin Kiggen, director, flight operations for Africa, ExecuJet Aviation Group, says: “We are pleased to be increasing our fleet in Africa and expanding our aircraft management services across the continent. We expect the Challenger 604 to be extremely popular, as the aircraft is capable of non-stop flights to a variety of destinations in Africa. The Hawker 800 will provide our customers a charter aircraft for non-stop flights to most sub-Saharan destinations.”
