Private jet charter provider, Zenith Aviation, is celebrating an unprecedented level of success in the first quarter of 2017 with charter sales up 250% compared to the same point last year and exceeding year on year hours flown by over 300. Zenith which operates out of London Biggin Hill Airport has benefited significantly from the introduction of two new Learjet 75s in 2016.
Stuart Mulholland, Managing Director of Zenith Aviation commented: “The Learjet 75s are amazing. It’s no surprise that customers prefer the newer aircraft and charter brokers are keen to promote them, being able to boast the newest aircraft available for charter in the UK has put us in a fantastic position. I could not be happier with the decision that we took to buy the Lear 75s.”
Zenith Aviation, which is a ‘Best Company to Work For’ as part of Markerstudy Group of Companies, has enjoyed significant growth, boasting the ability to charter, manage and maintain aircraft from its Biggin Hill base. There is also a desire for further growth within the Company, evidenced by the purchase of the hangar adjacent to the current facility in late 2016.
Stuart added: “I couldn't have predicted the levels of activity that we are currently seeing. We had a brilliant year in 2016 and 2017 looks to be even better. We are not only significantly up on ‘like for like’ charter sales but our engineering business is also extremely busy with third party maintenance work, it really couldn’t be better.”
