The most recent development in the light business jet scenario is the Eclipse 550 from One Aviation.

Key Market Trends

The Business Jet Segment is Anticipated to Witness Higher Growth

Currently, the Europe General Aviation Market is dominated by the business jets, in terms of segmental revenue. The growing number of business aircraft deliveries in the European region in the past few years has led to the region gradually becoming a major hub for light business jet operations. The growing preference for light business jets and the increasing number of ultra-high net worth individuals (UHNWIs) are promoting the growth of this segment. On this note, the Cessna Citation XLS aircraft being considered as the best-selling business jet in Europe. Traveling via a business jet results in offering enhanced comfort and flexibility for the passengers, allowing business aviation users to complete their travel objectives more quickly, securely, and smoothly. For business and employee travel, the use of business jet leads to increased business efficiency. Project teams can work in the security of the aircraft and discuss sensitive topics without fear of being overheard and on-board facilities are better suited to meeting and collaborative work than public commercial airport areas. The increase in the number of deliveries of the Honda Jet in Europe has led some air charter operators, such as Wijet, to upgrade their fleet with the more economical HondaJet aircraft, to provide their customers with a safe and superior product at a lower price. Other charter jet service companies are also expanding their fleet to meet the growing demand. For instance, in September 2019, Luxaviation added a Bombardier Global Express XRS and a Global 5000 to its aircraft fleet. The company has added nine jets in the past nine months. Such developments are anticipated to drive the business jet segment of the market in focus during the forecast period.

The United Kingdom is Expected to Experience the Highest Growth

In the European general aviation market, the United Kingdom currently accounts for a major share, in terms of revenue. Currently, the United Kingdom ranks third among the other European countries, in terms of business jet fleet size. There are over 27,000 civil aircraft registered in the United Kingdom, out of which 90% are used in general aviation. VistaJet, Ravenair, Wijet, and the Luxaviation United Kingdom, are some of the main charter service providers in the United Kingdom. Tourism is also expected to support market growth for general aviation in the United Kingdom. With the growing number of people opting for charter services for business travel in Europe, charter service providers are procuring new aircraft to increase their product portfolio. For instance, in October 2019, Luxaviation UK added a Bombardier Global 6000 to its fleet, based at London Luton Airport. Several procurement initiatives undertaken by business jet charter operators in the country are anticipated to provide a major boost to the growth of the European general aviation market during the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

The Europe general aviation market is dominated by players, such as Textron Inc., Gulfstream Aerospace, Bombardier Inc., Embraer SA, and Dassault Aviation. The market is driven by the procurement initiatives and is marked by the extensive R&D efforts of the aircraft OEMs to deliver state-of-the-art features in their aircraft models. In 2016, Cessna Aircraft Company, which is a subsidiary company of Textron Inc., reported the successful delivery of its 5000th Citation Light Business Jet, which was a Citation M2 aircraft. The aircraft was delivered to Helitrip Charter LLP, which is leasing the aircraft to Catreus Limited, an established charter operator based in the United Kingdom.

The new organization has been named TAG Maintenance Services (TMS). According to Dassault Aviation the company has acquired all TAG maintenance operations, including its service centers in Geneva, Farnborough, Le Bourget, Lisbon and other facilities in Luton and Moscow.
