Biggin Hill-based operator Zenith Aviation has experienced a considerable year-on-year increase in hours flown so far in 2017. MD Stuart Mulholland comments: “We saw a 37 per cent increase in June compared to the previous year, and the January to June period generated a huge 83 per cent increase. Combined with the impressive growth in our engineering business, this makes for a stellar first half of the year for Zenith. We are delighted.”
Mulholland attributes the success of the business to Zenith’s product and service delivery. “It is easy for the smallest thing to spoil the customer’s experience and we try that little bit harder to ensure that this does not happen. The addition of our Learjet 75 aircraft has re-energised the demand for the traditional double club four seating configuration, with more customers returning to this brand.”
The company is evaluating the offerings of several OEMs as it looks to strengthen its fleet for 2018. According to Mulholland, Zenith would like to add at least two further aircraft in the super-light category during the first quarter of 2018 and is keeping a watchful eye on other market sectors as it looks to add diversity to its portfolio.
