VVIP operator Royal Jet is showcasing on the MEBAA static one of its recently delivered Boeing Business Jets. The show regular is the largest operator of the VIP airliner with a fleet of eight aircraft.
The narrowbody on display is the second of a pair of BBJs that were handed over to the Abu Dhabi-based charter company in October and November respectively. They will eventually replace two of Royal Jet’s earlier examples, which are for sale.
The aircraft – registration A6-RJU (above) and A6-RJV – were completed by Germany’s Lufthansa Technik and feature 34 seats – eight VIP, eight business class, 18 standard – and a bedroom, situated at the front of the cabin.
“The latest BBJ is like nothing else in the region,” says Royal Jet’s new chief executive Rob DiCastri. “It is fresh in its design and represents an exciting change for us,” he adds. “Through a careful growth strategy that focuses on our clients, we are introducing products which give them exactly what they want and I am pleased to say that these two new amazing aircraft have already been very positively received.”
Both BBJs are equipped with the latest telecommunication and entertainment technology, says Royal Jet, including a KA-band wifi internet system to provide large bandwidth enabling services such as Netflix, IP-based live TV and fast upload speeds.
