Exxaero has expanded its operations to Germany after received an air operator’s certificate from Luftfahrt-Bundesamt, the Netherlands charter operator announced. It will initially operate a single Hawker Beechcraft Premier I at Weeze Airport in Germany's Lower Rhine region, but Exxaero plans to add more business aircraft there.

“Because we have an increasing number of German customers and fly on a regular basis from Weeze, we have expanded our airline to Germany,” Exxaero accountable manager Rogier Buijs said. “The handling is even easier for German customers now [that] they can book their flights at our German branch and fly with a German-registered aircraft.”

Exxaero expects to add four more aircraft in Weeze in the next 12 months because of high demand in Germany for private jet flights, Buijs said. Solid Handling will provide Exxaero’s ground handling at Weeze. In addition to serving as a charter operator, Exxaero offers aircraft management services and sales.
