Monaco-headquartered aircraft sales company Boutsen Aviation closed 2016 with on a high note, with four aircraft sold in December alone, adding to the previous 13 aircraft sold throughout the year.

In December, Chairman Thierry Boutsen sold a Gulfstream G550 in Basel, Switzerland, a week after a Gulfstream GV was sold in Luton, London, UK. Additionally, Boutsen President Dominique Trinquet doubled up on two Dassault Falcon 7X transactions in the US. During the same month, the company signed four new brokerage agreements for a Gulfstream G550; a Bombardier Global 5000, a Global XRS and a Challenger 604.

“Gulfstream and Falcons have definitely been two of our bestsellers this year,” Boutsen commented. In total, four Gulfstream aircraft were sold by Boutsen Aviation last year, all having gone through Premium PPIs at Jet Aviation Basel “to ensure the planes were in ideal form and condition when transferred to the buyer.”

“We keep the momentum at full speed,” added Boutsen. “As 2017 will also mark the 20th anniversary year of Boutsen Aviation, our entire team is going into it pedal to the metal!” Since the first of January the company already sealed deals on a Hawker 800B, a Beechcraft King Air C90A and King Air C90GTi, and closed a Bombardier Challenger 300 transaction.
