Al Jaber Aviation completes its 1st year in operation
Just one year ago in June 2009, Al Jaber Group revealed its entry into the VIP and corporate aviation market with AJA – Al Jaber Aviation. AJA, the world’s newest executive jet operator, offers its guests bespoke luxury travel to any destination of their choice. AJA will have a modern fleet of advanced, large-cabin aircraft from Airbus and Embraer. AJA aims to be a global leader in the rapidly growing VIP charter market.
Over the course of this year, AJA has achieved great milestones, and become a major player among the long established private airlines in the region. The Company designed and built its offices at Bateen Airport in the heart of Abu Dhabi city. AJA recruited experienced staff of over 40 aviation professionals and acquired the needed Air Operators Certificate (AOC) awarded from the GCAA and Aircraft Maintenance Organization (AMO) awarded from the GCAA in addition to approval of all AJA Post Holders.
These were not the only achievements of AJA during the first year of operation; the Company delivered on its promise to offer “Your Private Airspace” to its customers, a promise that we highly appreciate and work towards achieving it every time we offer our services. AJA also succeeded in the penetration of the GCC VIP & Executive Charter Market as well as the Intercontinental VIP & Executive Charter Market and achieved successful repeat business from some of the most VIP clients in the region.
More importantly AJA commitment to its service standards remained unshaken and in line with the Company’s business plan and objectives.
Mr. Mohammed Al Jaber, CEO of AJA said on this occasion, “We are proud and excited with the 1st year anniversary of AJA; we have worked hard towards seeing this day, and succeeded in the execution of our plans despite the tough economical situation. We are very optimistic looking ahead for the future. AJA is on track with its fleet delivery schedule; in addition to the two Legacy 600 aircraft that we received at the beginning of our operations last June, we received our first Lineage 1000 from Embrear last March and we will continue according to plan through receiving two more aircraft this year, the Lineage 1000 and Airbus 318”.
This year AJA also witnessed great successes and wins through setting up important partnerships, agreements and joint ventures with aviation industry suppliers and service providers.
