The granting of this certificate – the first AOC to be issued to the Group outside the UAE – allows RoyalJet Bermuda to conduct commercial operations on Bermuda registered aircraft managed by the company.


The BCAA only grants an AOC to an operator which is fully competent to safely operate the types of aircraft specified in the certificate. In order to be issued this AOC, RoyalJet Bermuda satisfied all BCAA requirements, demonstrating previous conduct and experience, availability of equipment, organization structure, qualified staffing, and sufficient maintenance and other arrangements.


“The process involved in being granted an AOC can be quite lengthy and there are multiple phases and criteria to be met. We at RoyalJet Group are proud to announce that our wholly owned subsidiary in Bermuda has been granted an AOC by the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority.  This is the Group’s first foreign AOC, and it expands our service offering to our existing customers while helping us continue our growth in the global market”, said Rob DiCastri, CEO, Royal Jet.


“The first aircraft to be operated by RoyalJet Bermuda under this AOC will be a European based BBJ we’ve recently added to our fleet which was already Bermuda registered. This new addition marks an historic moment in our operations, as we are now managing this asset for a private owner and select charter customers”, he further added.


“We are happy to announce that Royal Jet Bermuda is now certificated under the BCAA. They successfully met all the requirements and demonstrated exceptional business professionalism. We wish them a successful operation under the new certificate,” said Tariq Lynch-Wade, Director of Operations Designate, BCAA.
