Vertis Aviation adds new aircraft to business fleet operating in the Middle East
The aircraft, registered under the tail number A7-MHA, was built in 2001. It has a newly refurbished luxury interior and 11 VIP seats, to be operated under the air operator’s certificate from a leading Middle East airline out of Doha International Airport in Qatar.
The Challenger 604 is a new model for the company and is produced by the Canadian aircraft manufacturer Bombardier, the world’s third largest after Boeing and Airbus. With a range of 3,700 nautical miles, Vertis expects the model to nicely complement the larger Boeing Business Jet managed by the company out of Dubai.
"We are pleased with how our business is developing in the Middle East and delighted to be adding a new aircraft type - the popular Challenger 604 - to our managed fleet,” Jeffrey Emmenis, a partner at Vertis Aviation said. “Since opening in Dubai early last year, we have continued to expand our client base in this region; the second locally based aircraft is part of our long-term strategy."
Vertis began operating five years ago and recently opened an office at Farnborough International Airport in the United Kingdom, complementing its operations headquarters in Zug, Switzerland. The company also has sales offices in Dubai and Johannesburg, South Africa.
