Charter/management provider ExcelAire announced during EBACE that it has received approval to operate its five Embraer Legacy 600s into London City Airport (LCY). Located in the heart of London, LCY is the closest and most convenient airport for easy access to London’s financial district. With steep approaches and special noise-abatement departures, flight crew require special training and aircraft require enhanced certification to operate from LCY; ExcelAire has worked hard to make sure its pilots passed the necessary tests.
The company maintains office and hangar space at Long Island MacArthur Airport in New York, with aircraft based throughout the northeastern and midwestern U.S.
“With our London City approval, ExcelAire offers an option that few U.S. private jet operators can provide and it gives our business clients a competitive advantage,” said ExcelAire president David Rimmer. “Flying into London City Airport is one example of how private jet travel can offer passengers more convenient access to their destination,” he added.
