Elite Jets takes delivery of its second brand new Gulfstream G450

( DUBAI – Elite Jets, the luxury private jet operator based in Dubai proudly added to its existing executive aircraft fleet a second brand new Gulfstream G450.

Just like their first G450, this aircraft arrived straight from the US manufacturing plant earlier this January and had to undergo JAR-OPS modification to meet the demands of the regional market. Charter operation of this G450 under Elite Jets’ AOC will start as of the first week of April 2009.

The 14-seater Gulfsteam (G450) is a one-of-a-kind business jet that exemplifies excellence in travel for the corporate VIP or leisure traveller. A next-generation large cabin heavy jet with intercontinental range is more than an aircraft; it's a completely luxurious experience with its extra added facilities and superb amenities offering the ultimate in private jet travel.

“I am extremely pleased with our two Gulfstream aircraft. In August 2008, Elite Jets had received its first G450, and our clients truly enjoy with great pleasure their travel experience on board the G450,” said Mr. Ammar Balkar, board member, president, and CEO of Elite Jets.

The G450 comes with top-of-the-range facilities, upgraded engines, the latest avionics technology, and aerodynamic enhancements. One of the most preferred business jets in the world, it comfortably seats 14 passengers in spacious and luxurious accommodations with the latest in-flight amenities. The long cabin, with plenty of stand-up head room, allows you to move about with ease, stretch out and relax, or work in comfort with increased productivity. This aircraft includes all the latest in-flight amenities to make your travel both pleasurable and productive.

With a range of almost 5,000 statute miles, the G450 connects continents with ease. For example: with only 6 passengers onboard - the G450 can travel up to 10+ hours, non-stop, from Dubai to a destination as far as: Tokyo, Helsinki, Dakar, or Cape Town. It allows passengers to comfortably traverse both the Atlantic and Pacific, which makes the aircraft ideal for southern hemisphere destinations.

Maximum cruising altitude is up to 45,000 feet, but the G450 can climb to its initial cruising altitude of 41,000 feet in less than 23 minutes. The improved aerodynamics means you'll feel only a short and very smooth assent, while enjoying an extremely comfortable ride inside the cabin.

Enjoy superior in-flight catering enabled by facilities such as the full-service galley with bar and wet sink equipped with luxury china, silver, and crystal table-ware, a convection microwave oven, coffee and espresso maker – all serviced by our highly-trained and professional cabin crew to provide passengers with a full gourmet dining experience. Passengers can chose the catering preferences and request certain meals or beverages prior to their flight.

The state-of-the-art entertainment system such as the IFE Audio/Visual DVD entertainment system 20” LCD monitor at the front cabin bulk head, 17” flat-screen LCD monitor above credenza, 17” flat screen LCD monitor in the aft cabin, 7” personal LCD monitors for all club seats (06 nos.), and cabin speakers and noise cancelling stereo headphones (14 nos.) add to the in-flight comfort.

Even on-board business tools enabled by the superior communications and connectivity facilities that include several 115V/60Hz power outlets, high-speed data ports, SATCOM telephone with wireless handset, wireless access point for laptop computers, fax machine and email services, MedAir first-aid kit, and the Airshow Passenger Flight System with 3 cameras at aft, forward, and tail will all make your flight more productive and enjoyable.

Other features include a private fully-enclosed aft lavatory with a 17” LCD monitor and 115V/60Hz power outlet. The comfortable leather club chairs and one very comfortable fabric divan are complemented with warm natural tones, complemented by a light-toned interior and plush carpeting.

The twelve Gulfstream signature oval windows increase the sense of spaciousness while providing breathtaking views. More importantly, during daylight they substantially brighten the cabin with an abundance of natural light, helping to counter the effects of jet lag. Equally significant for passenger well-being is the 100 percent fresh air and the therapeutic oxygen outlet with bubble humidifier inside the cabin, and the cabin altitude will never reach above 6,000 feet. With three separate climate control zones and a fully-functional galley, the G450 is designed with your complete comfort in mind.

Both Gulfstream G450 are managed and operated by Elite Jets - thriving on providing its customers with safe, luxurious, private and comfortable trips, superior services, and travel solutions.
