K5-Aviation GmbH was founded in 2010 as an independent company, and it offers individually tailored management and commercial charter services for long-range aircraft.
Originally, K5-Aviation started operations with a VVIP Airbus A319 Corporate Jet (ACJ319) and obtained approval for commercial flights (AOC) in June 2011. Special permits for low visibility approach (CAT IIIb) and long-distance operations (ETOPS180) followed shortly afterwards. In the subsequent years, K5-Aviation enlarged its fleet constantly, and it currently operates three Airbus A319 Corporate Jets and one Bombardier Global 7500. One of the ACJ319 is a A319NEO, which was delivered to K5-Aviation, as the launch customer, in the second quarter of 2019. Shortly after K5-Aviation became on of the first operators to commercially operate a Bombardier Global 7500 and with those two new aircraft types K5-Aviation is setting new standards in long-haul flights. In 2021 K5-Aviation extends its approval with the additional types A330 and A350. K5-Aviation deliberately specializes in this small number of aircraft types, in order to offer precisely customized service. This enables it to be an expert partner to aircraft owners for all their individual needs.
The K5-Aviation range of services encompasses
Alongside individually customized support and highly professional operations, accurate and cost-efficient planning of maintenance and on-board safety are always our highest priorities. The foundation of this is K5-Aviation’s decision to limit its fleet to a small number of aircraft types. K5’s independence enables it to make that kind of decision, and that is part of what make us so unique.
We currently have no vacancies. Unsolicited application possible.
K5-Aviation only collaborates with selected partners, and has founded subsidiaries and partner firms for various purposes. For instance, the affiliate K5-Travel GmbH takes care of the booking of flight tickets, hotels, helicopters and limousines.
