Luxaviation Helicopters has announced the launch of the first ever global helicopter charter alliance, providing clients with a world-class standard in luxury rotorcraft travel.
The Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance is set to connect VIP helicopter charter operators around the world. It opens up new destinations and opportunities for operators, brokers and clients, while streamlining international charter booking procedures.
Luxaviation Helicopters is launching the alliance together with US-based HeliFlite; Austria’s HeliAustria, which has a number of US clients; France-based Azur Hélicoptère; PhilJets in the Philippines and UK-based Starspeed, which is also part of the Luxaviation Group.
Combined, the alliance gives brokers and clients access to 70 luxury VIP helicopters globally, including ExecuJet’s fleet of helicopters based in Mexico and South Africa.
All alliance members must undergo an approval process to ensure they meet Luxaviation Helicopters’ standards in safety management. All members will also benefit from Luxaviation Helicopters’ shared practices in industry certifications, efficiencies and customer service.
Charlotte Pedersen, CEO at Luxaviation Helicopters, said, “Since launching Luxaviation Helicopters as the world’s first VIP helicopter charter company in 2017, we have always looked for ways to partner and work with operators in different regions to provide a truly global service. The launch of the Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance takes this a step further, as approved members can call upon each other to unlock more of the world’s regions and open them up to their clients.
“We are extremely excited to build on and develop the Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance, which provides clients with an assurance and confidence in safety standards. We look forward to welcoming more like-minded operators who have a commitment to quality and safety, and we are already speaking to other operators that we hope to confirm soon.”
Kurt Carlson, CEO at HeliFlite, added, “We initially partnered with Luxaviation Helicopters at EBACE in 2018 and have enjoyed a fantastic relationship with them since then, significantly boosting our profile in Europe. We are delighted to be members of the mutually beneficial Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance because it enables us to act as the worldwide aviation solution for our clients.”
