undisclosed customer.

“This new management contract affirms the market’s
confidence in Rizon Jet’s ability to operate and charter the Bombardier
Family”, says Captain Hassan Al-Mousawi, chief executive officer of Rizon Jet;
“Together with our 2 Challenger 605s and the Hawker 900XP already based in
Doha, this additional aircraft offers a highly comfortable and luxurious flying
experience for our VIP clientele in the Middle East region and beyond”

This particular aircraft cabin is certified for 9
passengers, offering a club 4 seating configuration in the forward cabin, with
a divan plus Club 2 arrangement in the aft divan, facing a 4-seat dining table
in the aft compartment. A spacious lavatory is at the cabin’s end and the baggage

“Rizon Jet proudly continues to expand the fleet
it has under management and operation,” director of sales and aircraft management,
Simon D’Oyly said; “Bombardier’s Challenger 605 continues to receive
strong market acceptance, and it is a gratifying achievement for Rizon Jet to
see another 650 being delivered to the Middle Eastern market, joining Rizon
Jet’s managed fleet.”

The Challenger 605 can fly from Doha
to London, Singapore
and Johannesburg.

Captain Hassan Al-Mousawi said; “We are very excited about
this new partnership. The demand of corporate aircraft in the Middle
East has been growing very rapidly in the past few years and it is
anticipated that demand will increase over the coming years.”
