Royal Jet in an effort to strengthen its presence in the region has recently welcomed a new Bombardier Learjet 60 XR business jet (A6-RJE) and a Bombardier Global 5000 business jet (A6-RJC) to its fleet. A second Bombardier Global 5000 business jet (A6-RJD) will enter into service in January 2015, which will be followed by a second Bombardier Learjet 60 XR business jet within the first four months of 2015.
The company also confirmed renewing its collaboration with Boeing and will take delivery of two new Boeing business jets.
The Bombardier and Boeing aircraft are part of Royal Jet’s fleet replacement and expansion programme that will increase its fleet to 20 aircraft by 2020 at a cost of US $700 million. The company is also considering aircraft from Airbus, including the CS 300 and Gulfstream for future acquisitions. Today, Royal Jet is operating 11 aircraft (six Boeing Business Jets, two Gulfstream G300s, two Bombardier Learjet 60s and one Bombardier Global 5000).
The Bombardier Learjet 60 XR business jet can carry up to six guests while the Bombardier Global 5000 business jet can carry 12 guests. The new Boeing business jet is modelled on the Boeing 737-700 airline and is almost three times the size of the largest long-range corporate jets and can carry up to 50 guests.
