ExecuJet adds new 19-seater to fleet
Dubai, April 18, 2012
ExecuJet Middle East, part of the worldwide ExecuJet Aviation Group, has acquired the new VIP 19-seat Embraer Lineage to its 20-strong managed fleet in the region.
Based at Dubai International Airport, the new aircraft complements ExecuJet’s existing charter offering and is now available for third party charter.
With a cabin volume at least double the size of a traditional business jet, a stylish cabin featuring a bedroom, shower, and a very large baggage capacity, clientele can work, dine, relax or sleep while travelling in comfort, a statement said.
“We are delighted to introduce this Embraer Lineage into our ever-growing family of managed aircraft. Not only is it the largest in our management fleet but, it offers very competitive operating economics,” said Paul van der Blom, business development director and head of Aircraft Management, ExecuJet Middle East.
“It is a tremendously attractive charter aircraft and we know it will be appreciated by our discerning charter customers.”
“The market for private jets in the region is well established and continues to recover although at a slower pace than expected. There is a growing trend towards larger aircraft which has a truly global reach,” explained Mike Berry, managing director.
At Dubai Airshow last year the company announced a strategic partnership with National Air Services (NAS Holding) to develop an FBO at King Khalid International Airport (KKIA) in Riyadh.
“ExecuJet’s approach to regional expansion is based on good local partners and sound business ethics with expansion being organic as well as directed,” Berry added. – TradeArabia News Service
