+VIDEO Business aircraft operator Luxaviation Group now operates the first Bombardier Challenger 350 aircraft delivered to a customer in Belgium.

“We’re delighted to welcome this exceptional aircraft to Luxaviation’s fleet in Belgium,” said Hervé Laitat, CEO of Luxaviation Belgium.

“Our ExecuJet Brussels Fixed Base Operation (FBO) was the first to be certified by the International Standard of Business Air Handling (IS-BAH) in the country, and we’ve just achieved IS-BAH Stage II certification. We’re looking forward to extending our renowned offering to the owner of Belgium’s first Challenger 350.”

The Challenge is the only super mid-size aircraft that can fly full range at full fuel with full seat capacity, and can climb quickly and directly to 43,000 feet (13,106 metres).

Recently awarded steep approach certifications by several international regulatory bodies, including EASA, FAA and TC, the Challenger 350 aircraft allows operators to perform landings in countless difficult-to-access airfields, including London City Airport.
