Jana goes Global for Beirut operations
Jana Aviation has taken delivery of a Global 5000 jet which will be managed by Executive Aircraft Services (EAS) and based in Beirut, Lebanon.
"We are delighted that Jana Aviation has continued to place their trust in Bombardier aircraft for their operations in Lebanon," said Khader Mattar, Bombardier’s regional vice president, sales, Middle East, Africa and India, for business aircraft. "The Global 5000 jet is perfectly suited for the very discerning needs of our customers in the Middle East. Once again, the leadership of our Global aircraft family in this region is reaffirmed."
This aircraft joins a Challenger 300 jet already in operation in the EAS fleet.
"We are very proud to welcome the Global 5000 aircraft into the fleet of aircraft we manage," said Capt. Nicolas Meszaros, EAS’s general manager. "Bombardier's Global aircraft have a reputation for providing the highest levels of performance and comfort, and we're confident that this new jet will provide our customers with the exceptionally high standards of service that they rely on."
Bombardier claims that the super large Global 5000 jet combines superior transatlantic speed with the largest cabin in its market segment. The Jana aircraft features high-speed Internet connectivity, impressive entertainment options, a head-up flight display system, and one of the largest field-of-view of any business aircraft. It has a range of 5,200nm (9,630 km), and can connect city pairs such as Dubai-Cape Town, London-Seoul and New York-Cairo.
It also includes the Vision Flight Deck cockpit which Bombardier said is designed to deliver a completely new flying experience. “By combining the best in technological advancements with superior designer aesthetics, it provides pilots flying Bombardier's Global aircraft an unprecedented level of control and comfort.”
The Vision Flight Deck cockpit introduces the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite, providing an integrated flight deck to ensure interoperability between systems and is the first of its kind in business aviation.
