Richmond-based London Air Services unveiled five new Bombardier Learjet 75 aircraft at its Sea Island headquarters Tuesday.

The airplanes fly up to eight business travellers and offer better range than older models. London Air Services president and CEO Wynne Powell said the jets also offer wi-fi capabilities, LED lighting and up to four per cent in improved fuel efficiency.

"Bombardier continues to build best-in-class business aircraft, and the new additions will allow London Air Services to provide optimal service to our business clients," he said in a news release.

The firm also announced Tuesday a contribution of $75,000 in bursaries to the B.C. Institute of Technology's aerospace program—Canada's largest aerospace technology school.

London Air Services, which offers corporate jet travel service, also boasts three Bombardier Challenger 605s and three AW139 helicopters in its fleet.
