Aviation - 22nd January 2013

London, England, 22 January 2013London Executive Aviation (LEA), one of Europe’s largest business jet charter operators, is expanding again with the addition of another Bombardier Challenger 300 to its fleet.

The Challenger 300, tail number G-LEAZ, is based at London Luton Airport and brings the total number of aircraft in the LEA fleet to 28.

The super midsize Challenger 300, which can seat up to ten passengers plus crew and a stewardess, is a technologically advanced, high-performance business jet with intercontinental range. It features ‘fly by wire’ avionics, highly efficient Honeywell HTF7000 engines and a state-of-the-art cabin entertainment system.

With a 3,600 mile range, the aircraft can operate from runways as short as 1,300 metres and allows non-stop flights from London to destinations such as Moscow, Jeddah, Lagos and Dubai.

LEA’s managing director George Galanopoulos says: “The addition of this Bombardier Challenger 300 to our fleet highlights our dedication to offering the broadest range of aircraft options for business charter operations. We have now amassed considerable experience of operating this type and have been very pleased with its dispatch reliability. The aircraft fully meets passenger expectations for cabin comfort and space, and we have received consistently positive customer feedback.

“Our Challenger 300s fill a niche in our fleet between the midsize Citation Excel and large cabin Embraer Legacys. Their impressive range, coupled with their modern, spacious cabins, make these aircraft an extremely popular choice.”
