ExecuJet Middle East acquires Bombardier Global Express
ExecuJet Middle East, a leading business aviation services company and part of the Global ExecuJet Aviation Group, has recently acquired a Bombardier Global Express on its Air Operating Certificate, it was announced Thursday. The aircraft was obtained to meet increasing demand for ultra-long range charter aircraft in this region.
“The charter market in the Middle East has typically favored the larger, intercontinental aircraft,” said Khader Mattar, sales director ExecuJet Middle East. “Although our Bombardier Learjet 60 is popular on regional missions, the Global Express will offer our customers non-stop flights to destinations such as Perth, Australia and Cape Town, South Africa.”
“We are extremely proud to be able to offer this highly sought-after model in the region,” said crew member Capt. Denzil White. “The aircraft features a seating capacity of up to 16 passengers, it has a range of over 11000km, it flies farther and faster than any other business aircraft, and provides the most comfortable and productive cabin environment.”
ExecuJet Middle East remains the only independent charter operator to have been granted a U.A.E. air operating certificate, enabling its aircraft to operate from Dubai International Airport.
Mattar pointed out however: “An added advantage is that the cost-efficiency of this aircraft type allows ExecuJet to offer departures from most Middle East cities without incurring huge ferry costs.”
ExecuJet is one of the largest operators of Bombardier Global Express aircraft in the world, with aircraft based in Zurich, Geneva, London and Johannesburg. (menareport.com)
