Posted 13 December 2016 · Add Comment

ExecuJet Africa has received its first charter helicopter, a VIP configured Bell 407 helicopter, now available for charter from ExecuJet's Cape Town FBO facility.

ExecuJet will offer commercial helicopter charters for various scenic flights to surrounding vineyards and other tourist attractions. While ExecuJet’s focus for helicopters charters will predominantly be the tourist market in the region, the company will also make the helicopter charters available to its existing clients for their business and leisure requirements.

Gavin Kiggen, director of flight operations, ExecuJet Africa, said: “There is always a great demand for helicopters in the Cape Town region during the high-season, so we are really pleased to be able to offer this service to our customers. ExecuJet Africa is always looking for new opportunities to expand our charter offering in the region, and this new helicopter charter is an exciting step forward for the team.”
