ExecuJet Aviation Group expects high demand for its first Bombardier Global 6000 ultra-long-range business jet in Africa, which has joined its managed and charter fleet in Johannesburg.
“The Global 6000 has the largest cabin in its class and is equipped with the most advanced and reliable office options to maximise en-route productivity, making the aircraft popular among business travellers,” said Gavin Kiggen, Director, Flight Operations Africa, ExecuJet Aviation Group. “The aircraft’s ultra-long-range means the Global 6000 can fly non-stop from Johannesburg to most European cities and is frequently used for flights to the U.S. and Asia. Large-cabin aircraft are becoming increasingly popular in Africa and we anticipate growing our fleet in the coming months.”
ExecuJet is also anticipating increased helicopter operations in Mozambique following a short-term charter contract to supply rotary wing aircraft across the entire country.
The first charter was conducted in April with ExecuJet’s entire managed fleet, including a Bell 230, Airbus AS350 B3e and Bell 407, as well as two Eurocopter EC130 B4s. These aircraft operate across Mozambique, often between isolated locations and cities such as Mocímboa da Praia, Pemba, Nampula, Quelimane, Vilanculos and Inhambane, along with Maputo.
