Aviation authority granted Exxaero German AOC
Dutch private jet company Exxaero expands to Germany
Eindhoven – Exxaero, the private jet company based in the Netherlands, has established a German branch. Today, the representatives of the German Luftfahrt Bundesamt granted the company the permit (AOC) to operate aircrafts from Weeze Airport. Exxaero starts with one private jet at the German airport, but other jets will follow soon. Ground handling at Weeze is carried out by subsidiary Solid Handling, a trusted partner on German soil.
In the Netherlands, the airline has been active for years in the private jet sector, whereby they also make more frequent use of the Airport Weeze infrastructure for take-offs and landings. For Exxaero, this AOC opens doors in the important German market. “Because we have an increasing number of German customers and fly on a regular base from Weeze, we have expanded our airline to Germany,” explains Exxaero Accountable Manager Rogier Buijs. “The handling is even easier for German customers now they can book their flights at our German branch and fly with a German-registered aircraft.”
Airport Weeze home base for four more jets
The private jet with which Exxaero GmbH today officially settles at Weeze is a Hawker Beechcraft Premier 1 which can carry up to 6 passengers. This aircraft is used for destinations within Europe. “We will quickly expand the offer on Weeze, because the demand for private flights is high in Germany,” says Rogier Buijs. “Within a year we will station four more aircrafts in Weeze. Exxaero GmbH currently has five office employees and four pilots for the first aircraft in Weeze.”
Exxaero is based at the airport of Eindhoven, Amsterdam and Weeze (GER) and specializes in private charter flights, aircraft management and the purchase and sale of private jets. The company has different types of private jets in its fleet: Dassault Falcon 900B, Falcon 900C, Falcon 900EX, Dassault Falcon 2000, Cessna Citation Sovereign, Hawker Beechcraft Premier 1A.
