An A318 Elite operated by Al
Jaber Aviation (AJA) of Abu Dhabi and an Airbus Corporate Jet (ACJ) based in
Bahrain and operated by Comlux will be on display by Airbus at the MEBA show next week. Both aircraft are available for VVIP charter.
Al Jaber Aviation began offering its Airbus
A318 Elite for VVIP charter flights earlier this year and is the first Airbus
customer from the region to offer this service. It is also the largest Airbus
customer for charter aircraft in the Middle East,
having ordered four A318 Elites and two Airbus ACJs.
Comlux is one of Airbus’ largest
corporate jet customers and currently has an A318 Elite and an Airbus ACJ
based in Bahrain.
More than ten operators around the world are now
offering over 15 Airbus corporate jets for private charter. Both aircraft are
similar in size on the outside to traditional corporate jets, but are around
twice as big inside.
