Zeusch Aviation receives Air Operator’s Certificate from the Civil Aviation Authority – Netherlands
Lelystad, The Netherlands 28 October 2022 – Zeusch Aviation BV, the Netherlands-based aerial services provider, has confirmed receipt of its Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) on 24 October 2022. The AOC approval was granted by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Netherlands and enables Zeusch to deploy four of its fleet of seven King Air aircraft for medevac and charter flights.
“We expect to have our first flight confirmed under the new AOC within the next few days. Earning the AOC has required us to have personnel, assets, and systems set in place to ensure the safety of our passengers, employees, and the general public. Receiving the AOC shows that we have worked diligently towards that goal,” said Managing Director Herman van Kranenburg. Securing the AOC confirms that Zeusch has all the required professional capabilities and adheres to all safety regulations needed for commercial passenger aircraft operations.
Following the AOC authorisation, Zeusch will operate its fleet out of both its home base at Lelystad airport and at Amsterdam airport. Lelystad airport has a 2,700m long runway and accommodates quick (IFR) departures. Free parking in front of one of Zeusch’s three hangars reduces travel time and heightens convenience. Amsterdam airport has extended operating hours and a proximity to the city, making it an attractive airport option for executive and leisure customers.
“We are now in a very strong position to expand our product portfolio to give our customers even greater choice. Our aim is to be the best and largest King Air operator in Europe and, with the new AOC, we are one step closer to fulfilling our ambitions. With seven operational King Air aircraft, we already operate the largest King Air fleet in the Benelux region, and we plan to add another King Air C90A by the end of the year,” adds van Kranenburg.
“As AOC holders, we are well placed to develop many new opportunities for business growth and are extremely proud to have achieved this,” he concludes.
