Elit’Avia celebrates 10th anniversary

Left: Puja Mahajan, CEO, Elit'Avia

Elit’Avia, a fully integrated provider of business aircraft charter and management services, has reached 10 years of operation. Headquartered in Slovenia, with offices in Malta, Elit’Avia also serves the US business aviation market, offering charter services from its Atlanta facility.

Among its fleet of 21 midsize to long-range aircraft, Elit’Avia has Gulfstreams, Bombardier Globals and Challengers, Dassault Falcons and Hawkers. The company has also achieved Stage 3 International Standard Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) accreditation, certified by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).

Puja Mahajan, CEO, Elit’Avia, said, “We are very proud to be celebrating our 10th anniversary. Being based in Slovenia is very advantageous because most costs are considerably lower than in other EU countries. Plus, it is home to an exceptionally well-educated, talented and multilingual workforce. Since we are able to employ more people and offer a higher ratio of staff to aircraft, we can deliver better service than our competitors.

“Similarly, our Maltese air operator certificate is beneficial because the government is very pro-aviation. EU financial institutions and regulatory agencies, such as the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority, look very favorably upon aircraft registered in Malta, which may be particularly advantageous if a client wishes to sell an aircraft. With our commitment to delivering the highest levels of client service, 10 years of industry expertise and more than 35,000 hours of flight time, we thank our clients for their confidence and look forward to pursuing new opportunities together.”
