LEA Brings In The ‘Heavies’ With Falcon Fleet Addition

Aviation - 11th December 2008

London, England, December 11, 2008 – London Executive Aviation, the leading European business jet charter operator, has added non-stop transatlantic range to its capabilities with the addition of a Dassault Falcon 900EX to its fast growing fleet.  The heavy business jet is LEA’s first very long range aircraft and enters service this week from its base at Luton.

The Falcon has a non-stop range of 5,175 miles, easily enabling it to fly non-stop from London to destinations such as Chicago, New Delhi and Barbados.  Its beautifully appointed maple wood interior offers ample space for up to 14 passengers, with the cabin divided into three zones and featuring two generous divans.  Its galley includes oven and microwave, permitting hot in-flight meal service.  Separate seat and toilet facilities for crew ensure that passengers can enjoy their flight uninterrupted.

LEA advised on this choice of aircraft and ultimately helped to purchase the Falcon from another of the company’s owner clients. LEA is providing full management services for the aircraft.

The Falcon 900EX sits at the top of LEA’s diverse fleet of business jets, which includes Embraer Legacys, Challenger 300s, Citation Excels and Europe’s largest fleet of Citation Mustangs.  This breadth gives LEA an unrivalled ability to meet almost any executive flight requirement.

George Galanopoulos, managing director of LEA, said, “We are proud to add another respected business leader to group of owner clients, and to have helped him secure such an outstanding aircraft.  This is truly a ‘go anywhere’ business jet, putting the world within your grasp and assuring you of a supremely relaxing flight.”
