Vertis adds a Global 6000 to its fleet
Swiss-based Vertis Avition will be adding a Bombardier Global 6000 from the beginning of August 2013, the Global 6000 will be the first African based aircraft operated by the company.
The ultra-long range aircraft will be positioned primarily in Johannesburg, South Africa to cater for the growing demand in the continent.
The Global 6000 will be the company’s first jet actively marketed from an African location. The aircraft will be operated by a local corporate flight department.
Erica Da Veiga, partner at Vertis said “We are very excited about the possibilities that this immaculate Global 6000 offers for our international charter clients. With its ultra-long range and short-field capabilities it is ideal for work on the African continent which requires aircraft that can cover vast distances.”
“This addition marks the beginning of our expansion strategy in Africa which we believe offers great potential for further development. We’re already seeing a high demand for charters between Brazil and Angola, Lagos and Johannesburg, London and Johannesburg and anticipate the route map will just become more complex as the continent’s requirements expand,” Da Veiga concluded.
The 2012 Global 6000 is configured with 14 seats and features a contemporary and comfortable interior with galley, dedicated crew rest area and luxurious private stateroom (pictured).
The aircraft also has internet access and Wi-Fi connectivity along with a full IFE system. Vertis expects the aircraft will prove popular with heads of state and government travel in addition to CEO’s and senior business executives needing a comfortable and long range aircraft fitted with technology that allows constant communications.
