Air Charter Scotland Adds Two Praetor 600s To Fleet

Air Charter Scotland has added two new super-midsize Embraer Praetor 600s to its charter fleet. One will be based at London Luton Airport, with the other based at Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Both aircraft feature KA Band and Satcom Direct connectivity – allowing passengers to connect to Wi-Fi whilst in flight.

The two new aircraft will join the Glasgow-based operator’s current fleet consisting of an Embraer Legacy 500, Legacy 650, a Bombardier Challenger 350, a Dassault Falcon 7X, a Cessna Citation Latitude, CJ2, CJ1 and two Citation XL aircraft.

The Praetor 600 was launched in 2018 as an improved variant of the Legacy 500 super-midsize jet. With a range of 4,000 nm (7,408 km), the Praetor 600 is able to operate directly between London and New York in 7.5 hours and directly between London and Dubai in 6.5 hours.

“The Praetor offers a generous cabin for nine passengers. It is ideal for shorter runway airports too, including Cannes Mandelieu, enabling great flexibility for our clients” said Derek Thomson, COO, Air Charter Scotland. “Private air charter has been embraced by many new customers these past 24 months, and the level of charter interest we are experiencing remains strong.”
