Another double Learjet order for Zenith


London, UK-headquartered Zenith Aviation – a long-time customer of Bombardier Business Aircraft – has acquired two additional Learjet 75 aircraft, adding to the two already in its fleet.

The order was placed during last week’s NBAA-BACE convention in Las Vegas, NV.

Zenith Aviation has been operating Learjets since 1999, and acquired its first two Learjet 75 aircraft just over a year ago. According to a company statement, both aircraft will be UK-based, with their home airports still under discussion.

“Since their delivery at the end of last year, we have benefited significantly from adding two Learjet 75 aircraft into our existing fleet, almost doubling our hours flown in 2017,” commented Zenith Aviation Managing Director Stuart Mulholland. “More clients are requesting the Learjet brand, re-energizing the demand for the traditional double-club, eight-seat configuration. With the additional Learjet 75 aircraft arriving next year, we look forward to being able to satisfy our ever-increasing customer demand in 2018.”

Aside from the four Learjet 75 aircraft, Zenith Aviation also operates Learjet 45, Challenger 604 and Cessna Citation XLS. There are approximately 160 Learjet aircraft currently based in Europe. With the recent purchase, Zenith has become the largest Learjet operator of the continent.
