Royal Jet, an Abu Dhabi-headquartered international luxury executive flight services company, chaired by H.E. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, has entered into an agreement with Arab Wings of Jordan to jointly manage a new Challenger 605. Arab Wings, which started operations in 1975 as a Royal Jordanian executive jet subsidiary, is owned by the Royal Jordanian Air Academy.

The jointly managed aircraft will join Royal Jet in February 2009 and enhances the super mid-size element of its fleet. At a cruise speed of Mach 0.80, the Challenger 605 can swiftly link city pairs such as Abu Dhabi to London in under eight hours, Riyadh to Geneva in just over six hours, and Jeddah to Berlin in just under six hours. Its maximum range is 7460 km (4027 nm).

The new deal could signal the start of further cooperation in the future between the two companies, which share a number of common synergies.

Ramzi Zaroubi, VP Finance and Business Development, who led the Royal Jet team said, Aircraft management is one of the cornerstones of our strategic five year plan both in developing our own fleet, and managing other aircraft. This joint venture provides us with the opportunity to extend our reach further across the Middle East from our base in Abu Dhabi.
