Royal Jet is the Middle East’s foremost private charter company chaired by His Excellency Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan. For the past 12 years, Royal Jet has operated from its Fixed Based Operations (FBO)/VIP terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Last year, Royal Jet operated over 2,600 flights and flew to over 250 airports in more than 105 countries. The airline’s clients are based across the world and include royal families, governments, foreign dignitaries and corporations as well as high profile individuals. The success of Royal Jet is due to the company’s commitment to their clients and ensuring that each one receives a personalised service from a dedicated team.
Royal Jet's product offering spans several operations including:
-Royal Jet Charter Brokerage, a luxury air charter services, which provides travel solutions through sourcing the appropriate aircraft for charter through a network of carefully audited operators
-Royal Jet Medical Evacuation Service offers state-of-the-art equipment and highly-qualified, skilled and dedicated medical professionals
-Aircraft management and acquisition consultancy aimed at delivering optimum returns.
-In 2014, Royal Jet added FBO Management Services to its repertoire. This is an important niche market that needs a high level of service and customisation.
Royal Jet’s FBO at Abu Dhabi International Airport is a fully equipped facility offering an array of services, which range from providing standard Ground Handling services to aircraft exterior and interior cleaning and dressing. Once a customer arrives at Royal Jet’s FBO, they can take advantage of the airline’s own security, customs and immigration department eliminating the need for airport queues and formalities. While they relax in the FBO, clients can enjoy the comfort and luxury of Royal Jet’s VIP lounges, delicious cuisine or state-of-the-art conference rooms.
In addition to its home at Abu Dhabi International Airport, Royal Jet has an FBO facility in the Seychelles, ‘Air Seychelles VIP’, which opened in October 2013 and features the same level of VIP hospitality and services that are available at Royal Jet’s FBO in Abu Dhabi.
In order to meet the growing demands of the industry, Royal Jet announced a fleet expansion and development programme at the end of 2013, which will be completed by the year 2020 at a cost of US $700 million. This is in order to continue to provide the highest levels of customer service to their valued clients on board and on ground. The programme started in October 2014 and Royal Jet has taken delivery of three new aircraft – two Bombardier Global 5000s and one Bombardier Learjet 60 XR – in the past six months. The airline is the world's largest single BBJ operator and currently operates 11 aircraft – six Boeing Business Jets, two Bombardier Global 5000s, two Bombardier Learjets and one Gulfstream G300.
Royal Jet is proud to be a founding member and a current board member of MEBAA. It is an organization that plays an important role in helping to grow the Middle East’s private aviation industry. MEBAA’s global events, such as the MEBAA Show Morocco in September, serve as a platform to showcase the expanding and growing strength of the industry in the region. These events also provide an opportunity for businesses and governments to meet with current and potential new clients.
