EBACE EXCLUSIVE: Lufthansa Debuts Dedicated Business Aviation Division

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Lufhansa, the major commercial carrier who has pioneered a private jet/commercial flight hybrid solution in its Lufthansa Private Jet (LPJ) product, has announced a new dedicated business aviation division, Swiss PrivateAviation. Swiss PrivateAviation recently took the operation of LPJ’s growing Cessna Citation fleet in house to leverage its strength in the business aircraft arena and reduce LPJ’s reliance on third-party operators during heavy-lift periods.

To attract even more fleet options, Swiss PrivateAviation is offering two aircraft management plans: Private management for those customers who do not want their aircraft made available for third party charter, and commercial management.

Under the current rules Swiss registered aircraft cannot provide point-to-point travel within Germany, so Lufthansa partner DCAviation will continue to provide LPJ services within the country.

Lufthansa is also considering applying for a European Union air operator’s certificate that will allow Swiss PrivateAviation to operate freely across Europe. The LPJ fleet currently consists of two super-light XLS+s, one CJ1 and two CJ3 light business jets.
