Rizon Jet of Qatar is to become a new operator of an Airbus Corporate Jetliner (ACJ), which it will manage on behalf of a new Gulf customer who ordered it earlier this year, it was announced at MEBA yesterday.

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,” said Rizon Jet CEO Patrick Enz.

Airbus has sold more than 70 corporate jets to date, from models based on the A320 single-aisle family to customised VIP ships of the air based on the wide-body models.

Rizon Jet was founded in 2006 and is headquartered in Doha, Qatar, with additional bases strategically located in Bahrain, the UK and the UAE. It focuses on providing a comprehensive suite of private aviation services that includes aircraft consulting, charter, finance, management, maintenance and sales, plus FBO and VIP terminal services.
