Will manage aircraft for Gulf client
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 strong 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.
“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 and operation of an Airbus Corporate Jetliner was both a natural and desirable step for us,” says Rizon Jet CEO Patrick Enz.
“If you have the need to travel in an up-market 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 like no one else can 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.
Only Airbus offers such a complete range of modern corporate jets with seating for 19 to over 90 passengers, only Airbus delivers so much freedom of enjoyment on board, and only Airbus packs so many innovations into every aircraft it delivers.
Airbus’ hallmark is bringing new and innovative technology to the airliner field, leading the way with fuel, weight and cost-saving initiatives, and these benefits – together with the classy comfort and superb space that its corporate jet versions deliver – make them the natural choice for those that want the best in private transport.
The Airbus advantage in corporate jets is highlighted by the 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. Airbus corporate jets are the only ones flying on every continent, including Antarctica.

It focuses on providing a comprehensive suite of private aviation services that includes aircraft consulting, charter, finance, management, maintenance and sales, plus fixed base operator (FBO) and VIP terminal services.
