Centreline Air Charter (CAC) has secured the contract to operate the UK’s only Embraer Legacy 500 aircraft and will be offering it for charter from the end of April 2016.
CAC, a subsidiary of the Bristol Flying Centre (BFC) Group, received the brand new, nine-seat aircraft into its Bristol Airport base in March, where it is in the process of being placed onto the company’s Aircraft Operating Certificate (AOC).
Phil Brockwell, commercial director of BFC, commented, “To be able to bring yet another aircraft type into our fleet, and to be the first in the UK to offer charter customers the option of the versatile Legacy 500, is really exciting.
“We are looking forward to demonstrating the benefits of this beautiful new aircraft to brokers. We have stated clearly that our goal is to diversify the type of aircraft in our fleet and operating this Legacy is another step in meeting that goal.”
This Legacy 500 is only the second of its type in Europe and brings the number of aircraft in the CAC fleet to nine.
