PremiAir launches Lear 45s
Tuesday 14, September 2010
PremiAir is proud to announce its further expansion into the corporate jet charter industry, with the commencement of Lear 45 jet charter flights across the UK, Europe and beyond.
The Lear 45 jets operated by PremiAir are fully available for charter and capable of accommodating up to eight passengers in a spacious VIP cabin with double club seating. Seats that recline, track and swivel, fold down work tables, separate washroom and large baggage compartment make the Lear 45 an excellent choice for business and leisure travellers alike.
The Lear 45 is capable of flying for 4 hours without a fuel stop, enabling it to transfer passengers directly from London to Moscow. The capability to fly from short runways allows it to land at destinations such as Chambrey that many other jets cannot, and the PremiAir Lear 45s are also approved to fly in and out of London City Airport, dropping passengers straight into the heart of London.
“The Learjet 45 is fully proven in the European private jet charter market and we’re delighted to be up and running so quickly with our new charter operations,” said Neil Gibson, PremiAir’s Director of Aircraft Charter & Management. “We’ve had a lot of interest already for the Learjets, which complement our existing Hawker Beechcraft Premier 1 operations. We have a terrific flight crew team in place, with considerable Learjet experience and this is a great opportunity for us to grow our position in the private jet charter market.”
Matt Ashby, PremiAir’s Operations Manager, added: “The Learjet 45’s excellent range, speed, payload and short runway performance makes this a very popular choice of aircraft for our clients. Capable of flying non-stop between London and Moscow, our Learjet fleet is also certificated for London City Airport, which adds an important dimension to our private jet services.”
Jets and helicopter charter - PremiAir’s unique offering
He added: “PremiAir is unique in the UK to offer clients a fully integrated executive helicopter and private jet travel solution, which gives us a distinct advantage over other operators. Many customers are interested in the time saving benefits of connecting their arrivals and departures at the major London airports, with some 40% of helicopter movements departing The London Heliport connecting on to business jets.”
PremiAir will base its Learjets throughout Europe and maintain the aircraft at the company’s London Biggin Hill facilities, which are part 145 approved for Learjet 40/45 services as well as for the Challenger 300.
PremiAir was named ‘Best Executive Aviation Provider’ at the 2010 Business Travel Awards. Other awards include Buying Business Travel Diamond Award Winner 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 Best Executive Aviation Provider. Luxury Travel Winner Best Private Charter Company 2008.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
