Two VIP Dornier 328Jets will be placed into Dubai by 328 Support Services (stand 893). The German company has a contract with a private individual who is arranging for the aircraft to be operated in the Middle East and Africa -solely for VIP use.

The customer, through a Nigerian trading company, has acquired two of the 31-seat airliner-configured 328Jets previously operated by Shell. Both are low-time aircraft, with 6,000h logged.

They will be modified by 328 Support into 10-seat VIP aircraft, replicating the 10-seat VIP layout the organisation showcased at the MEBA business aviation show in Dubai last November.

"The ratification of this deal came about as a direct result of a visit to our 328Jet on the static park. The customer came on board and simply said I want an aircraft like this.MEBA turned out to be a great showcase for us," says 328 Support Services chief executive Dave Jackson.

In the static park the company is showing off a 328Jet owned by Cirrus Aviation, part of the newly expanded DC Aviation Group.
