Luxaviation Group has added a new hangar at its ExecuJet Zurich facility, which more than triples its capacity at the Swiss airport, and also announced fleet additions in Europe. At 53,820 sq ft (5,000 sq m), ExecuJet’s new private hangar at Zurich Airport is double the size of its existing facility and is large enough to simultaneously house several bizliners. The expansion also includes 107,639 sq ft (10,000 sq m) of apron space, complementing ExecuJet’s 43,056 sq ft (4,000 sq m) of private ramp parking.

“Hangar space is in very high demand at Zurich Airport, due to our cold, snowy winters. As well as being Switzerland’s largest international airport, Zurich is also the sixth-busiest airport in Europe for business aviation,” said ExecuJet v-p for Europe Niclas von Planta. “Now we should be able to host almost all traffic in one of our two facilities, even at peak times such as the annual World Economic Forum in January.”

Meanwhile, Luxaviation has added four aircraft to its fleet in Europe so far this year, including a Gulfstream GV and G650; Bombardier Challenger 650; and Embraer Phenom 300. The latter two are available for charter, it said.
