ExecuJet, part of the Luxaviation Group, is expanding its managed fleet in Africa with the addition of a Bombardier Challenger 350, to be based in Nairobi, Kenya.

The jet has been registered on Luxaviation’s new San Marino aircraft register, and will be one of the first aircraft to be operated on the Luxaviation San Marino Air Operating Certificate (AOC). The Challenger 350 boasts capacity for up to 10 passengers and, with a range of 3,200nm, is capable of flying non-stop from Nairobi to Barcelona.
