MHS Aviation, a leading German aircraft management company, has added a new Falcon 2000LXS aircraft from Dassault Aviation. It joins two 2000LX aircraft already available for charter by the company, which operates 13 aircraft in all. The acquisition of the new aircraft by MHS shareholders reflects a major commitment to expanding service to its clients.
With this new order, MHS Aviation strengthens its position as a key Falcon operator and key charter provider of the Falcon 2000LX/LXS aircraft family. The 10-passenger 2000-series aircraft is a mainstay of charter operations around the world and is Dassault’s most popular business jet with nearly 700 delivered.
“These are perhaps the ideal charter jets to carry large teams, into and out of short fields when necessary considering their flexibility, and to do so economically over short and long distances,” said Steffen Fries, CEO of MHS Aviation Group.
The company’s 2000-series aircraft fly up to 1,000 hours each per year—a high utilization rate for a business jet.
MHS selected the 2000LXS based on its key features: the most comfortable cabin in its category and range of 4,000NM / 7,400 KM.
MHS Aviation conducts frequent trans-Atlantic flights with the aircraft and considers it to provide the most price efficient service on these long routes. It has the lowest direct operating cost in its class, second-to-none operational performance, combined with high reliability, which allows high utilization. Falcons are known to be able to operate from short runways, often those close to city centers, while cruising comfortably at high speeds en route.
