Posted 20 March 2019 · Add Comment

Bombardier Business Aircraft announced today that the Luxaviation Group, one of the largest business aircraft operators worldwide, now operates the first Challenger 350 aircraft delivered to a customer in Belgium.



Above: Recently awarded steep approach certifications by several international regulatory bodies, including EASA, FAA and TC, the Challenger 350 aircraft allows operators to perform landings in difficult-to-access airfields, including London City Airport, neighbouring one of the world’s greatest financial centres.

This new addition to the Benelux market joins Bombardier’s business aircraft fleet of over 600 aircraft in service in Europe.

“We are very pleased that Bombardier’s best-selling Challenger 350 business jet has joined Luxaviation’s fleet of aircraft,” said Christophe Degoumois, Vice President, Sales, Europe, Russia and CIS, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “With its impressive high-performance features, superior economics, unmatched cabin comfort and entertainment technology, the Challenger 350 aircraft is ideally suited for the European market.”

“We’re delighted to welcome this exceptional aircraft to Luxaviation’s fleet in Belgium,” said Hervé Laitat, CEO of Luxaviation Belgium. “At Luxaviation, we have always set the bar very high for international business aviation operations, and our facilities in Belgium are a true reflection of this. Our ExecuJet Brussels Fixed Base Operation (FBO) was the first to be certified by the International Standard of Business Air Handling (IS-BAH) in the country, and we’ve just achieved IS-BAH Stage II certification, proving our team’s dedication to safety and service excellence. We’re looking forward to extending our renowned offering to the owner of Belgium’s first Challenger 350.”

As the only super mid-size aircraft that can fly full range at full fuel with full seat capacity, the Challenger 350 aircraft climbs quickly and directly to 43,000 feet (13,106 metres), allowing passengers to efficiently avoid traffic and inclement weather.

With a range of 3,200 NM (5,926 km), the Challenger 350 aircraft can connect Brussels to Dubai non-stop.
