Elite Jets takes delivery of Gulfstream G450
Elite Jets, the luxury private jet operator based in Dubai, added a new Gulfstream G450 to its existing fleet of executive aircraft.
“I am extremely pleased with our new aircraft. Our clients will truly enjoy with great pleasure their travel experience on board this brand new G450,” said Ammar Balkar, board member, president and CEO of Elite Jets.
“This G450 is currently the first and only one available for charter in Dubai and it is more than an aircraft; it's a completely luxurious experience with its extra added facilities and superb amenities offering the ultimate in private jet travel,” said Balkar.
The G450 comes with upgraded engines, the latest avionics technology, and aerodynamic enhancements. One of the most preferred business jets in the world, it comfortably seats 14 passengers in luxurious furnishings.
The long cabin with plenty of stand up head room, allows passengers to move about with ease, stretching out and relaxing or working in comfort with increased productivity. The aircraft includes all the latest in-flight amenities.
With a range of almost 5,000 statute miles the G450 connects continents with ease. For example, with only six passengers onboard, the G450 can travel up to 13 hours, non stop, from Dubai to a destination such as Tokyo, Helsinki, Dakar, or Cape Town.
The maximum cruising altitude is up to 45,000 feet, but the G450 can climb to its initial cruising altitude of 41,000 feet in less than 23 minutes. The improved aerodynamics enables a short and very smooth ascent.
There is full galley with china service, state-of-the-art entertainment system and business tools.Twelve oval windows increase the sense of spaciousness while providing more views and access to natural light. Passengers also have access to the 100 per cent fresh air and the therapeutic oxygen outlet with bubble humidifier inside the cabin. The G450 is designed to have three separate climate control zones.
