Abu Dhabi-based Royal Jet, a private jet charter service, plans to acquire two more aircraft by 2005 to add to its existing fleet of three aircraft.
Its third aircraft, Gulfstream, joined the fleet last month.
Royal Jet is planning more agreements with airlines after the success of its recent Gulf Air operation between Abu Dhabi and Geneva, said Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, chairman of the Abu Dhabi Department of Civil Aviation.
This summer Royal Jet started flights to Geneva under a Gulf Air flight number on a weekly basis.
A new Gulfstream aircraft will be added to the fleet by 2004 and a Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) in 2005, he was quoted a saying by Gulf News. The investment will be about $29 million for each aircraft.
