Air Charter Scotland (ACSL) has ushered in the New Year with additional charter capacity in the shape of two new, super mid-size Embraer Praetor 600 business jets.
G-MCEN is positioned out of London Luton Airport at Signature Flight Support’s FBO, while G-GDAB’s main base is at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
“We are delighted to have introduced these technologically-advanced aircraft into service and on the G-register,” said Air Charter Scotland COO Derek Thomson.
“The Praetor offers a generous, exceptional cabin for nine passengers. It is ideal for shorter runway airports too, including Cannes Mandelieu, enabling great flexibility for our clients.
“Private air charter has been embraced by many new customers these past 24 months,” he said. “Leisure travel has been the prime reason, but since the autumn, business executives and corporates are coming back too.
“Whether it’s peace of mind for health, wishing to avoid queues and delays at hub airports, not having to stay overnight for a business trip, or the fact that a once regular air service is no longer – the level of charter interest we are experiencing remains strong.”
With recently added CAMO accreditation in the UK and Europe with sister company Air Charter Scotland Europe, Air Charter Scotland was able to facilitate the formal handover of both aircraft in Melbourne, FL. Having an experienced inhouse CAMO team is beneficial for aircraft owners whose aircraft they manage, being fully conversant with the flux in regulations supporting aircraft in the UK and European markets.
Air Charter Scotland Europe was one of the first UK air charter companies to be established in Malta in early 2021, enabling its France and Malta based business jets to operate individual with the EU without having to request a permit.
