RoyalJet Group expands its presence in the UAE
RoyalJet, the wholly owned private aviation subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi owned and operated RoyalJet Group, has expanded its presence in the UAE, adding Dubai as a new operating base.
In addition to its existing operational bases at Abu Dhabi International Airport and Al Bateen International Airport (Abu Dhabi’s city airport), RoyalJet is now basing aircraft from its industry leading fleet at Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai.
These aircraft, including Boeing Business Jet VVIP Airliners and Bombardier Global 5000 corporate jets are now available for charter by business and leisure travellers directly into and out of Dubai. This move comes as a result of the growing demand for private jet travel in the Emirate and the imminent opening of Expo 2020.
Rob DiCastri, CEO, RoyalJet said: “Despite this challenging ongoing pandemic, Dubai has found a way to grow private jet traffic into and out of this beautiful city, flying in the face of the trend which has been seen outside only the US and maybe Europe. As one of the leading global destinations for tourism and business Dubai continues to thrive and welcome guests from numerous countries.”
With Expo 2020 about to commence, traffic to and from Dubai and the UAE will surely skyrocket and demand for capacity in all areas of aviation will increase even further, including in the VVIP sector. As a UAE company, RoyalJet is taking this unprecedented step in order to support this incredible event and provide exceptional options to allow VVIP guests and larger groups to attend.
RoyalJet operates the world’s largest fleet of Boeing Business Jets, with seating configurations ranging from a 19 seat VVIP layout with master suite and shower, to a 52 seat corporate shuttle, to various options in between. The company is accustomed to flying Heads of State, Ambassadors, Ministers, Royal Family Members and other Ultra High Net Worth Individuals in these aircrafs, but also large government delegations, sports teams and large family groups. For smaller groups the company also operates two Bombardier Global 5000 aircraft which seat up to 12.
“If ever there was a right time for RoyalJet to bring its industry leading aircraft and services to Dubai it is now,” added DiCastri. “We are ready to support the efforts made by our government to make this event a major success, bringing our expertise and our capacity to Al Maktoum International Airport which is so perfectly located near the Expo 2020 grounds. Our focus will be on bringing as many visitors as possible to the UAE over this period in the most safe, secure and enjoyable manner possible.”
