NetJets Europe Falcon 7X Lands at LCY

 - May 12, 2009, 7:07 AM

NetJets Europe has become the first operator permitted to fly the Falcon 7X trijet into London City Airport (LCY), which requires special approval for the downtown airfield’s 5.5-deg steep approach. The fractional ownership provider last year flew nearly 5,000 flights to and from the airport, making London City the fourth most popular destination in the operator’s fleet. NetJets Europe commissioned British architect Lord Norman Foster, who happens to be a NetJets customer, to design the interior and exterior for its 7X fleet. NetJets Europe has taken delivery of the first two of an order for 33 of the trijets.
