Rizon Jet to become new Airbus ACJ operator
Rizon Jet of Doha, Qatar, is to become a new operator of an Airbus Corporate Jetliner (ACJ), which it will manage on behalf of the new Gulf customer which ordered it earlier this year.
The latest order builds on the presence that Airbus corporate jets already have in the region, which is one of the world’s largest markets for business jets. As part of the management contract, Rizon Jet will offer its client consulting services in the design and completion process.
Delivery of the “green” Airbus ACJ is planned for next year, with the outfitted aircraft being handed over to the customer in 2012. The interior will reflect the latest standards of luxury in business aviation.
Airbus has sold more than 170 corporate jets sold to date, which comprise over 110 A318 Elites, Airbus ACJs and A320 Prestiges, plus over 60 VIP and government widebodies.
