London Executive Aviation History
Founded in 1996 with a single piston engine aircraft, London Executive Aviation has rapidly grown to become one of Europe’s largest executive air charter operators.
Always at the forefront of private aviation, we were the first executive air charter firm to obtain European Joint Aviation Authority certification, and the first operator in Europe to introduce the entry-level Citation Mustang into charter service, drastically broadening the availability of private charter to a more mainstream travel market.
Ours is the most diverse private charter fleet in the UK, able to meet almost any business or leisure air travel requirements. Predominantly comprising modern business jets, our aircraft include Beechcraft King Air 200, Cessna Citation Mustangs, Citation IIs and Excels, Bombardier Challenger 300s, Embraer Legacy 600/650 and Falcon 2000LX/EX.
In May 2014, London Executive Aviation became part of the Luxaviation Group – the second largest corporate aircraft operator in the world – offering our clients access to a combined fleet of 250 aircraft worldwide, with plans to expand our large business jet offering in the near future.
London Executive Aviation operates from bases in London, around the UK and Continental Europe. Passengers can be collected from virtually any UK location to be taken to over 1,200 continental European airports and airfields.
We are the private charter of choice for a diverse client base that extends to the brightest in business and the highest levels of government. Our customer list includes: investment banks and other financial institutions, large and mid-size businesses, US-based executives en route to continental Europe, leading air brokers, celebrities from music, entertainment and sport, high net worth individuals, government, hospitals and medial assistance companies.
London Executive Aviation is also relied upon by some of the UK's highest profile business leaders to manage aircraft on their behalf.
LEA is a full member of the Baltic Air Charter Association, the British Business and General Aviation Association, National Business Aviation Association, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association and the Institute of Travel Management.
