  • K5-Aviation prepares to be one of the first operators in the world of the Bombardier Global 7500

K5-Aviation GmbH is preparing to be among the first few operators in the world to introduce Bombardier Aviation’s new extra long-range Global 7500  to the charter market.  The K5-Aviation management team is scheduled to take delivery of the aircraft in Montreal this August.    The aircraft, with a 7,700 nm range and 16 hours’ flying time, and max speed of Mach 0.925*,  will be the German company’s third VIP large cabin aircraft available for charter,  joining two Airbus Corporate Jets.

 

The Global 7500 will be available for charter based out of Munich International Airport, luxuriously fitted with 14 VIP seats.  K5’s aircraft will be the first Global 7500  with a shower.  Its spacious cabin will also feature a full-size galley and four cabin zones including a full bedroom in the rear.  Ka-band internet in combination with Lufthansa Technik’s “nice” entertainment system for inflight streaming and video conferencing will add to the passenger experience.

 

“We are very excited to be introducing this stunning new aircraft under our management and AOC.  The charter brokers we work closely with are eagerly awaiting it too,” commented Luca Madone, K5-Aviation’s Accountable Manager.

 

“The Transoceanic capable business jet will open up a wealth of new city pairs for our discerning clientele that we haven’t been able to reach before, including direct routes such as Miami  to Dubai,” added K5 Head of Charter Sales Lorenz Baur.

Privilege Status  introduced for regular clients

 

Luca and Lorenz will support K5-Aviation’s presence at EBACE in Geneva this week (May 20-23). They will also be rolling out a new loyalty ‘Privilege Status’ category for its regular clients.  The status  offers such perks as no cancellation fees for bookings up to 12 hours before travel and other benefits  for regular customers.  The loyalty programme  will be attractive to K5-Aviation clients, with the company also introducing another new type - a brand new Airbus ACJ319Neo in the first quarter of 2020.  The aircraft, powered by CFM International LEAP-1A  engines, made its maiden flight from Hamburg on April 24th.

About K5-Aviation

 

K5-Aviation was founded in 2010 in Germany by four experienced aviation experts.

Last year it took its charter bookings in house, and these are handled from K5’s office in Zug, Switzerland.  K5-Aviation’s discerning clientele enjoy a variety of  long-range destinations.  The Middle East, USA, East Asia and Indian Ocean Islands are especially popular.
