Royal Jet, the Abu Dhabi-headquartered luxury flight service provider, has taken delivery of a new 34-seat Boeing Business Jet.
This news comes on the heels of the company’s recent announcement of additions to its leadership team, tasked with guiding the company into a new era.
This unique new Boeing Business Jet aircraft boasts a front-end bedroom, eight VIP, eight business class and 18 standard seats, and was received by the company’s Chairman H.E. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan (biography), its new Managing Director H.E. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan (biography), and its new President and CEO Rob DiCastri (biography).
The interior of this one of a kind addition to the fleet was designed by New York based designer Edése Doret, known for his elegant and innovative layouts and for the use of distinctive materials such as the carbon fiber seen throughout this aircraft. His design was then brought to life by industry leading outfitter Lufthansa Technik of Hamburg, Germany, who delivered this exceptional aircraft on time and on budget.
In terms of amenities, the aircraft is equipped with the latest telecommunication and entertainment technology to meet the needs of the exclusive customer base of Royal Jet (profile).
This is the first Boeing Business Jet worldwide with a KA Band Wi-Fi internet system installed, providing large bandwidth which enables services such as Netflix and IP based Live TV and download and upload speeds not seen before in the industry.
This aircraft also features Enhanced Vision System technology in the cockpit and Royal Jet is the first charter operator in the UAE to receive regulatory approval from the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority to use this capability.
The EVS system enhances operational safety by using a stand-alone thermal imaging camera that sees infrared energy emitting or radiating from objects and helps pilots navigate better in poor weather conditions.
Royal Jet will take delivery of a second new Boeing Business Jet – the sister ship to this current delivery – later this month as part of the fleet renewal program launched two years ago.
These two deliveries will bring the overall Royal Jet fleet to 13 aircraft and the Boeing Business Jet count to eight, further extending the company’s position as the largest operator of Boeing Business Jets in the world.
