DC Aviation Expands its Fleet


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
DC Aviation
: 20 May, 2008  (New Product)
As Germany's major provider of private jets, DC Aviation will in future be operating four Airbus Corporate Jets from the aircraft manufacturer Airbus Industrie.
With its fleet of 28 jets, the branch's major player, which originated from what used to be DaimlerChrysler Aviation and Cirrus Aviation, will thus become the largest operator of this type of aircraft in the German business aviation market.
'Our many years of transatlantic operational experience with the A 319 CJ and the great demand for this type of aircraft, is the key reason for our further expansion in this Market. Our goal is to become the largest premium operator of private jets in Europe. With the purchase of the first Airbus 319 CJ, We are giving the green light for further corporate jets on this scale', announced Dieter Heinen, CEO.

The company's first own Airbus 319 CJ was previously in operation for the Daimler corporation and, with immediate effect will be offered exclusively by DC Aviation for the executive charter market. Apart from comfortable business seating for 48 passengers and generous seat pitch of 152 cm, the jet excels especially when it comes to long haul flights with its maximum cruising range of up to 8000 km/4320 nm. Four additional Tanks make it possible for the Execuliner to fly nonstop in 91/2 hours, for instance from London to Chicago or from Munich to Bangalore.

Three more Airbus of type 319 CJ fitted exclusively to take up to 22 VIPs will be added to the fleet over the next twelve months and will most likely be operated in Europe and the Middle East.

The expansion of the fleet is however not restricted to the Airbus 319 CJ alone: 'We are building up our capacities from the Learjet to the Airbus. In 2008 alone we expect a total of twelve new additions of the type Gulfstream G550, G450, G150, Challenger 850, Legacy 600, Citation XLS and Learjet 40', to quote managing director Stefan Buschle. 'With our extremely young modern fleet, structure and our unique concept for service and safety, we are winning new partners all over the world.'
