Switzerland-based Vertis Aviation has just completed its first round-the-world leisure journey.

The trip took four weeks to complete and involved 11 stops. A Middle Eastern client flew on a Boeing Business Jet, the latest aircraft addition to the Vertis portfolio.

The route departed Riyadh then headed for Australia, before visiting Argentina, landing at Mendoza and Buenos Aires. The final sectors took place in the US cities of Dallas, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, before heading east again to Paris and back to Riyadh.

Jeffrey Emmenis, partner at Vertis Aviation, said: “It was a challenging but successful trip, which we managed to execute to the customer’s satisfaction owing to our excellent relationship with Privajet who manage and operate the aircraft.”

“Fortunately Privajet is an efficient management company that understands the special requirements of our clients and they have the same boutique approach to maintaining the highest quality of service as Vertis, which is extremely important for us and our clients,” Emmeris added.

“From an operational and management point of view, the challenge with a trip such as this is to be able to control the costs, transparently, by anticipating the possible problems and finding the right solutions without compromising on the quality, safety, and customer satisfaction,” said Jérôme Franier, commercial director of Privajet.

Privajet operates the Boeing Business Jet under management on its Maltese AOC. It anticipates expanding its boutique fleet in the near future to include further wide-body aircraft and is already in discussion with owners of further BBJ, Airbus Corporate Jets and a range of Bombardier and Dassault models.

The aircraft forms part of the Vertis portfolio of aircraft which it markets exclusively on behalf of its operating partners which includes: Gulfstream G450, Gulfstream G650, Bombardier Global 6000, three Airbus ACJ corporate jets, Bombardier Global XRS aircraft, Bombardier Global Express and a Dassault Falcon 7X.
