London, England, October 26, 2009 – London Executive Aviation (‘LEA’) is today celebrating inclusion on the shortlist of the 2010 Business Travel Awards, the leading business travel industry honours. The company is named as a finalist in the category for Best Executive Aviation Company.
Patrick Margetson-Rushmore, LEA’s chief executive, says: “Business aviation has become increasingly important in Europe and LEA is proud to be one of the region’s top operators. We have always strived to set new standards, whether being the first in Europe to introduce a fleet of lower-cost Citation Mustang jets, or by offering the widest range of bases around London and the south-east of England.
“The Business Travel Awards are unquestionably the Oscars of the industry, so to be named today as a finalist is very exciting. We’ll be hoping to claim the top honours when the winners are announced in the New Year.”
The Business Travel Awards ceremony and gala dinner takes place on 18 January 2010 at the Grosvenor House hotel, London.
