London Executive Aviation (LEA) introduced the first Cessna Citation Excel in the UK charter market last month. The airplane, which is privately owned but managed and operated on charter flights by LEA, was ferried from the U.S. in early August. The twinjet was added to the company’s air operator’s certificate (AOC) late last month. The Excel, which will be based at London Stansted Airport, will be the biggest aircraft in LEA’s fleet, which also includes two Citation IIs, a King Air 200 and a Piper Seneca and Piper Navajo. The company is headquartered at Stapleford in Essex, and in addition to Stansted, it has operating bases at London City, Manchester and Leeds-Bradford Airports.
