SaxonAir maintains its continued growth after signing an agreement to manage a Beechcraft King Air 350 on behalf of the aircraft owner, Gresley Aviation. The aircraft has joined SaxonAir’s existing mixed charter fleet which ranges from the entry level Citation Mustang jet, to the longer range Hawker 900XP midsize jet alongside its helicopter operation.
The turbo-prop Beechcraft King Air 350 continues to be the choice of flight for many companies, government agencies and individuals from around the world. This is primarily due to its mix of comfort, economy and flexibility, giving the ability to serve both major business hubs and smaller private airfields alike. The aircraft seats up to nine passengers with unmatched fuel efficiency and lower operating costs, seeing it as a greener option for the private business traveller.
Alex Durand, CEO of SaxonAir Charter Ltd says “We are delighted to see the King Air 350 aircraft back onto our charter fleet. The company has operated this aircraft type for many years now and our experience was one of the major factors in the owner choosing SaxonAir for its aircraft management.”
The aircraft management deal will see SaxonAir providing crewing, continuing airworthiness and operational support for both owner operated flights and private air charter use when not in operation on behalf of Gresley Aviation. The aircraft will operate jointly between both SaxonAir’s headquarters in Norwich and Brussels on behalf of the aircraft owner.
