““The charter industry needs to become much more efficient…We need to take a page from the airlines’ code-sharing agreements…Part 135 charter [operators] could review each other’s schedules, use each other’s airplanes.” ”
Mideast Charter Operator Adds Airbus
Al Jaber Aviation has become the first Middle East charter operator to offer an Airbus aircraft for executive flights, following delivery of its first A318 Elite. The jet can carry 19 passengers and features a private office that converts to a bedroom as well as large bathrooms and abundant luggage space. The company has ordered three more A318 Elites and two Airbus Corporate Jetliners, which will make it the region's largest Airbus corporate jet operator.
"We aim to provide VVIP customers with the ultimate in comfort, space and service, and because the A318 Elite and Airbus ACJ have the widest and tallest cabins of any business jet, can now deliver it," said Al Jaber Group chief executive officer Mohammed Al Jaber.
