Royal Jet confirms Boeing jet refurb

Carrier's sixth Boeing Business Jet joins Gulfstreams and Learjet in fleet.

Royal Jet confirms Boeing jet refurb
GROWTH: Royal Jet is jointly owned by Abu Dhabi Aviation and the Presidential Flight Authority, the royal flight service.

Abu Dhabi-based luxury carrier Royal Jet has taken redelivery of a Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) after it underwent a multimillion dollar refit and refurbishment.

The plane – registration number A6-RJY – is the sixth BBJ in the Royal Jet fleet, and now boasts a majlis-style meeting lounge, a formal meeting and dining area, and a rest and relaxation zone with flatscreen televisions.

“Part of our growth strategy is to increase our fleet over the next five years through acquisitions and aircraft management deals,” said Royal Jet CEO Shane O’Hare.

“We committed a significant amount of money and resources to the overhaul of RJY, which now epitomizes the very best in cutting-edge technology and luxurious refinement.”

Royal Jet is jointly owned by Abu Dhabi Aviation and the Presidential Flight Authority, the royal flight service. It is chaired by HE Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, who serves as a Minister in the UAE Federal Cabinet.

In addition to the six BBJ’s, the carrier’s fleet includes two mid-range Gulfstream 300s, a long-range Gulfstream IVSP and a Learjet 60.
