ZÃ¼rich, Switzerland (PRWEB) January 26, 2005
ExecuJet is pleased to announce the addition of another Bombardier Global Express ultra-long range jet to its European fleet. Although home-based in ZÃ¼rich, Switzerland, the aircraft is operationally based in Kiev, Ukraine (UKBB) strategically positioned to capture increasing charter demand out of Eastern Europe for widebody ultra-long range business jets. This brings to six, the number of Global Express aircraft in ExecuJetÂs world wide charter fleet.
ÂExecuJet continues to target Eastern Europe to grow our charter and aviation services business,Â comments Peter Smales, managing director of ExecuJet Europe. ÂWe have been very vocal the past year about our European expansion plans, particularly with respect to Eastern Europe, so the addition of this Global Express and itÂs positioning in Kiev is an important milestone, providing the perfect platform to satisfy regional demand for large cabin comfortable non-stop travel to the Far East and Americas.Â
In related news, ExecuJetÂs ZÃ¼rich base has been voted best Fixed Base Operator (FBO) in Switzerland by charter operators and brokers in the annual European Business Air News FBO survey. Fixed Base Operations typically cover business aviation activities such as flight planning and ground handling services which include in-flight catering, refuelling, customs and immigration assistance and aircraft valet. ExecuJetÂs catering facilities were also voted into the top position in Europe and the FBO ranked 6th overall out of a total of 177 FBOÂs surveyed. The company also ranked highly in Passenger Facilities and Technical Capabilities sections.
ExecuJet is pleased once again to be an official ground handling service provider for The World Economic Forum which will be presenting its annual general meeting in Davos, Switzerland on 26 - 30 January 2005. This service will be in partnership with Swissport Executive Aviation.
