On the occasion of the Dubai Airshow 2015, Lufthansa Technik AG and Royal Jet, the Middle East’s foremost private charter company, have jointly announced that they have recently signed an agreement for the completion of two B737-700 BBJ. 

The two projects will be completed at Lufthansa Technik’s VIP & Executive Jet Solutions site in Hamburg. The aircraft will be redilevered in Q3 and Q4 2016.

The cabin interior was done by the New York based designer Edése Doret who is known for his elegant yet innovative designs. Both cabins will be very modern with a spectacular interior design. The VIP interior compromises a private master bedroom together with a fully equipped master bathroom as well as a large lounge area, business and economy class areas. Both aircraft will be equipped with the latest telecommunication and entertainment technology to meet the needs of the exclusive customer base of Royal Jet. Each aircraft will comfortably accommodate 34 guests.

“Royal Jet is the benchmark for private charter companies in the region. It is our aim to be the benchmark for global operators offering VIP chartered services” said Captain Patrick Gordon, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer of Royal Jet.

“The company’s continued growth and success is testimony to the vision and leadership of our chairman H.E. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, the Board of Directors, shareholders and over 400 of Royal Jet staff who deliver service and operational excellence every day. Our partnership with Lufthansa Technik reinforces Royal Jet’s consistent offering of award-winning service excellence.” added Captain Gordon.

Lufthansa Technik´s Senior Vice President VIP & Executive Jet Solutions, Walter Heerdt, explained: “We are very proud that we have been selected by Royal Jet and also given the chance to materialize the spectacular design of Edése Doret. 

Royal Jet is currently operating six BBJ’s and therefore already considered as the world's largest independent BBJ operator. After completion the Abu Dhabi based charter operator will add those two aircraft to the existing fleet and Royal Jets customers will soon be able to experience this very exclusive product.
