Mideast Charter Operator Adds Airbus

Monday, August 30, 2010 - 1:00am

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.

“This is going to be mind blowing. Mind blowing…It’s about having an architecture that would enable the creation of a self-sustaining city on Mars with the objective of being a multi-planet species and a true space-faring civilization and one day being out there among the stars…I’m so tempted to talk more about the details of it. But I have to restrain myself. ”
