Royal Jet flies high at Dubai Airshow
Royal Jet, the luxury aircraft service provider based in the UAE, has expanded its fleet by the acquisition of a Bombardier Challenger (CL300).
The delivery was signed by Christopher Crum, president and CEO, Royal Jet, and Jaheed Fazal-Karim, worldwide vice-president, sales, Bombardier, in a ceremony held at the Royal Jet Chalet at the Dubai Airshow.
“Royal Jet has witnessed considerable rise in demand for luxury air charter service,” said HE Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, chairman, Royal Jet. “Royal Jet has maintained steady growth and profitability since its launch in 2003 and we are very aware that in this industry, it is vital to have the resources necessary for satisfying our customers and meeting all their luxury travel needs. In our efforts to continuously provide the best and the latest in air travel, adding the Bombardier Challenger (CL300) to our fleet highlights our continuous expansion plans for Royal Jet.”
The Bombardier Challenger (CL300) aircraft is a new generation aircraft designed to deliver best-of-class value in the super midsize business jet category, it includes six luxurious VIP seats and a three-seater divan. With an 8.72-metre long cabin designed to provide a highly productive working environment for travellers with a well-appointed luxury interior, the CL300 has been rated as a high performance jet best suited for regional, short sector, or multi-stop itineraries.
But that’s not all. Royal Jet also announced the acquisition of two Boeing Business Jet (BBJ), bringing its total fleet to seven aircraft, and having the largest BBJ fleet in the world. Royal Jet’s two new aircraft are the opulent versions of the modern Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) 737-700 with an en-suite state room (double bedroom with a bathroom), eight VIP seats in club-four setting, eight VIP seats in lounge setting, eight Business seats and 12 Economy seats. The two new BBJ are ideally suited for heads of state, royalty and business elites on their trans-continental and long haul flights.
An active leader in the air charter and services industry, Royal Jet hosted the first Middle East Business Aviation Conference (MEBA), a Royal Jet initiative launched to examine the growing needs of the business jet sector, last month.
