Luxaviation Helicopters launches world’s first helicopter charter alliance

Luxaviation Helicopters has announced the launch of the first-ever global helicopter charter alliance, providing clients with luxury rotorcraft travel. 

The Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance will connect VIP helicopter charter operators around the world. It opens new destinations and opportunities for operators, brokers and clients, as well as streamlining international charter booking procedures.

Charlotte Pedersen (pictured left), chief executive officer for Luxaviation Helicopters, said: “Since launching Luxaviation Helicopters as the world’s first VIP helicopter charter company in 2017, we have always looked for ways to partner and work with operators in different regions to provide a truly global service. The launch of the Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance takes this a step further, as approved members can call upon each other to unlock more of the world’s regions and open them up to their clients.“

The new charter alliance is with US-based HeliFlite, Austria-based HeliAustria, France-based Azur Hélicoptère, Philippines-based PhilJets and UK-based Starspeed, which is also part of the Luxaviation Group.

This alliance gives brokers and clients access to 70 VIP helicopters globally, including ExecuJet’s fleet of helicopters based in Mexico and South Africa. All alliance members must undergo an approval process to ensure they meet Luxaviation Helicopters’ safety standards.

Kurt Carlson, chief executive officer for HeliFlite—who partnered with Luxaviation Helicopters at EBACE in 2018,  said: “We pride ourselves on our Wyvern Wingman and ARG/US platinum safety ratings, the highest in the industry, and being part of the alliance will enable us to recommend similarly esteemed operators in other regions to our clients.”

All members will also benefit from Luxaviation Helicopters’ shared practices in industry certifications, efficiencies and customer service.
