Rizon Jet enjoys massive passenger increase in London
Qatar-based private aviation services provider Rizon Jet has seen traffic increase threefold at its one-year-old VIP terminal at London's Biggin Hill airport.
Demand for private jet charters into the UK capital has surged on the back of high profile events including Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee and the London 2012 Olympics.
Director, FBO UK, Allan McGreal said: “Six months into our second year, movements and passenger numbers at our London base are up by almost 300% compared to last year, engineering is also experiencing a reassuring increase in maintenance business particularly for Bombardier & Hawker aircraft for which we have line & base approval across most of the range of both types.
“Despite the back drop of a gloomy economy, and a general flat trend in the business aviation market, Rizon Jet UK really is bucking the trend and delivering month on month growth. Feedback shows we are consistently rated excellent across all segments of the business drawing comments particularly for client service and value for money, and whilst confident we’ll be able to convert many new customers into loyal ones, we’re not complacent and work hard to meet and exceed their expectations and always seek long lasting and rewarding relationships with our clients.”
Founded in 2006 in Qatar, Rizon Jet owns, manages, maintains and charters aircraft. It was the first private operator in Qatar to receive an Air Operator Permit (AOP), and the first private jet operator in the Middle East to expand its business activities into Europe.
Chief executive officer of Rizon Jet, Captain Hassan Al-Mousawi said: “Our growth is down to our commitment to a holistic and customer-centric approach to business aviation, providing world-class private travel solutions and business aircraft services to today’s timepressed traveller. Our mission is to meet increasing demand for corporate aircraft charter and expand our services with aircraft maintenance services, aircraft trading and management. In fact, we offer all the services expected of a turnkey business jet operation and that’s what sets us apart and is attracting attention.”
