Prestige Jets of Abu Dhabi orders Two spn Light Jets

Travel News Asia Wednesday, 23 May 2007

VIP executive jet company, Prestige Jets of Abu Dhabi, has concluded a sale with ExecuJet Middle East for two spn light jets from Grob Aerospace. Agreement on the purchase was reached on the eve of EBACE 2007 following initial discussions during the MEBA Show in Dubai earlier this year.

Representing the first sale of an spn to a Middle East client, the contract for the first aircraft was signed by Niall Olver, CEO of ExecuJet Aviation Group and Faris Deeb, Managing Director of Prestige Jets a subsidiary of the Al Yasi Group. Grob Aerospace returns to EBACE this year, showing the Spns all new Porsche Design Executive VIP Interior.

The agreement for the second aircraft was signed by His Excellency Sheikh Ghaith Bin Hamel Al Ghaith Al Qubaisi, founder of Al Yasi and the founding partner of Prestige Jets. 

Both spn aircraft will be based in Abu Dhabi. The second of the two aircraft will focus on running regular shuttle services between Abu Dhabi and the Al Yasi steel factory in Suhar, Oman. Suhar Airport is runway-restricted and the spns unique operating characteristics are ideal for these operations. Both aircraft, which call for delivery in 2009, will be operated by Prestige Jets for commercial use.

Prestige Jets operates and manages a private jet fleet currently comprising a Bombardier Challenger 604 and Hawker 800XP, all fitted to the highest standard for its VIP clientele, featuring elegant interiors and state of the art in-flight entertainment.

The spn fits perfectly in our plans to launch a new dimension in executive jet VIP service, said Faris Deeb. It will be our first light jet, but offering a very comfortable, generously sized and flexible cabin.

The spn offers a payload-range of 1,800nm with five passengers and two pilots. The group expects to be flying the spn on sectors such as Dubai to Cairo.
