MEBA2012: London Executive Aviation's lasting legacy

Posted 13 December 2012 · Add Comment

London Executive Aviation (LEA), one of Europe's largest business jet charter operators, is at the show to see if it can do a deal with a local AOC holder to share its two Embraer Legacy 600 aircraft based in the UK.

Managing director George Galanopoulos (on right)  explained: “There are peak times in Europe and the Middle East when people are travelling. For example, there are peaks in the Gulf region just before and just after Ramadan. In Europe the slower times coincide with peak times in the Gulf and vice versa.”
The company is looking for a local operator to share aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance (ACMI) lease costs.
Patrick Margetson-Rushmore, LEA chief executive, added: “We are in discussion with a couple of firms already and aim to have something signed in the next few weeks.”
