Challenger 604 joins Luxaviation UK
The aircraft will be based at Athens International (ATH) with a full-time crew, allowing for last-minute charter requests. Purchased by an existing Luxaviation UK customer for private and charter use, it will be available for charter without the owner’s release. The aircraft was fitted with new interiors and exteriors in 2015.
“There is high demand for business aviation in Southeast Europe but an inadequate supply of quality aircraft,” comments Luxaviation UK Managing Director George Galanopoulos. “The owner purchased the aircraft to help counter that shortage. The Greek economy may continue to struggle, but the business aviation market remains prominent as wealthy individuals and visitors require transportation during the tourist season; the same applies to the neighboring Balkan countries.”
The Challenger 604 can accommodate up to nine passengers and three crew members, with a maximum flying distance of 4,000 nm.
In addition to the Challenger 604 and the recently added Challenger 350 and Falcon 2000LXS, the 24-strong Luxaviation UK fleet also includes eight Embraer Legacy 600/650s, four Cessna Citation Excels, four Citation Mustangs and more.
