Rizon Jet of Doha, State of Qatar is to become a new operator of an Airbus Corporate Jetliner (ACJ), which it will manage on behalf of a new customer from the Gulf region and which was ordered from the manufacturer earlier this year.
The latest order builds on the strong presence that Airbus corporate jets already has in the region, one of the world’s largest markets for business jets.
Delivery of the “green” Airbus ACJ is planned for next year, with the outfitted aircraft being handed over to the customer in 2012. As part of the management contract Rizon Jet will offer its client consulting services in the design and completion process.
The design of the interior has been tasked to Andrew Winch Design, based in London, United Kingdom. The aircraft will be completed by AMAC Aerospace, in Basle, Switzerland. The interior will reflect the latest standards of luxury in business aviation.
“Our customer wants a comfortable and spacious environment for his family and friends during his travels. The new Airbus ACJ ticks all the boxes for his requirements. Moving into the management of an Airbus Corporate Jetliner was both a natural and desirable step for us,” commented Rizon Jet CEO Patrick Enz.
“If you have the need to travel in a large business jet, you might as well get the best value for money by benefitting from the greater space and comfort that Airbus corporate jets have to offer, because otherwise you will settle for less,” reasons Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy. “We deliver unrivalled quality at the top end of the market, as more and more premium aircraft management companies such as Rizon Jet are discovering,” he adds.
In addition to greater comfort and space, Airbus Corporate Jet customers benefit from many advantages that flow from being part of the world’s most modern airliner family – such as better value-retention, the latest in satellite phone technology, modern navigation aids such as GPS, and worldwide support that includes features tailored to corporate-jets.
