The company is currently at AERO in South Africa where it has a stand and displaying aircraft on the static.

Gavin Kiggen, Luxaviation’s Vice President, Africa, said:: “We’re really excited to be exhibiting with a stand and static display at this industry-leading general aviation trade show, at a time when our business is growing so strongly. We’re emerging powerfully from challenging times.

“Our team at AERO South Africa will be delighted to discuss our established portfolio of aviation services, from aircraft management and insurance, corporate aircraft charter, fixed-base operations, aircraft sales, cargo charter and unmanned aerial vehicles to our range of luxury travel experiences and concierge services.

“Naturally, we’ll also be excited to talk about our new fleet additions. The Beechcraft King Air 260 is such a popular aircraft with the business community globally,” continues Kiggen, “and we’ll be offering this turboprop for charter in Africa for the first time. New from the factory in 2022, and able to carry up to eight passengers, the aircraft will be based at Lanseria International Airport, near Johannesburg. From there, we’re expecting high demand for flights to locations including Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. We also have a long-range jet from the Bombardier series joining later this year and we know the large-cabin comfort and range will be highly attractive to charter customers across Africa.”
