At the Dubai Airshow, Royal Jet and Lufthansa Technik signed a completion agreement for two BBJ VIP aircraft.

The aircraft will be completed at the Lufthansa Technik VIP and Executive Jet Solutions facility in Hamburg and be redelivered in Q3 and Q4 2016. Each aircraft will comfortably accommodate 34 guests.

“Royal Jet is the benchmark for private charter companies in the region.”

Captain Patrick Gordon, interim president and CEO of Royal Jet said: “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.”

“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.

Walter Heerdt, Lufthansa Technik senior vice president VIP & Executive Jet Solutions said: “We are very proud that we have been selected by Royal Jet and also given the chance to materialise the spectacular design of Edése Doret.”

Royal Jet is currently operating six BBJ’s. 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.
