ZENITH AVIATION, based at Biggin Hill in the UK, has purchased two additional Learjet 75 business jets, Bombardier Aircraft announced on October 9.
The company operates a fleet of Learjet 75 and 45 aircraft, together with the Bombardier CL604 Challenger and Cessna 560XL Citation XLS, providing business aviation services in the UK.
Zenith has been operating Learjets since 1999 and took delivery of its first Learjet 75 in 2016. The two new aircraft will also be based in the UK, but the company has yet to decide which airport will be their home, saying several locations are under consideration.
Zenith Aviation’s Managing Director Stuart Mulholland said: “Since their delivery at the end of last year, we have benefited significantly from adding two Learjet 75 aircraft into our existing fleet, almost doubling our hours flown in 2017. We’re extremely happy with their performance and more clients are requesting the Learjet brand, re-energising the demand for the traditional double-club, eight-seat configuration. With the additional Learjet 75 aircraft arriving next year, we look forward to being able to satisfy our ever-increasing customer demand in 2018.”
With a combined fleet of four aircraft, Zenith Aviation becomes the largest operator of the Learjet 75 in the region.
