Empire Aviation Group acquires Challenger 605

Empire Aviation Group (EAG) has added a Bombardier Challenger 605 to its managed fleet. The aircraft will be based in Lagos, Nigeria. It will be the first of EAG’s managed aircraft in Africa to be offered for charter.

The Challenger 605 has 11 seats and a range of 4,000 nautical miles. EAG managed the whole acquisition process, including registration and fleet induction, for the aircraft’s private owner.

“This is a good time for existing aircraft owners to upgrade and for first-time owners to enter the market, with business jet prices starting to edge higher as inventories begin to dry up,” said Steve Hartley, executive director at Empire Aviation Group. “Africa is a strong emerging business jet market and we were delighted to work with this new customer to source the Challenger 605 with the help of our new sales office in the US, and to manage the entire sourcing and acquisition process. The new aircraft will help meet the needs of the growing charter market in Africa, and offers a very good balance of capacity, range and overall value.”
