- Vertis Aviation
General aviation operator Vertis Aviation has announced, that it has added a second Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) to its fleet.
The new aircraft will help the operator to fly long-range routes for private customers. Operated by Bermuda-headquartered company Longtail Aviation, the new BBJ will be a strong addition to Vertis Aviation´s growing portfolio of private jets.
With the aircraft, Vertis Aviation addresses customers, which are in need of an executive airliner that delivers comfort on long-range routes. The BBJ is capable of flying up to 5,500 nautical miles (10,186 kilometers) and has a flying-time of up to 12 hours when using PATS auxiliary fuel tanks. Non-stop routes like London to Bangkok or Paris to Los Angeles are practicable with the aircraft´s characteristics.
Vertis Aviation said, that the company also seeks to welcome heads of state, celebrities or government officials on-board its new BBJ aircraft.
Vertis partner Jeffrey Emmenis said: “We are experiencing a solid rise in demand for aircraft that can accommodate complex trips, and we’re arranging an increasing number of global circumnavigations. This type of aircraft perfectly fulfils all the requirements for these very special journeys.”
The aircraft is being configured to accommodate 18 passengers in an exclusive cabin. The interior features L-shaped sofas which create two separate lounge environments, a fully equipped galley and regular business class seats. 11 seats are made for lie-flat sleeping.
“I am extremely pleased to be expanding our portfolio with this jet as we know many clients are fans of the BBJ models. It perfectly complements our tailored aviation services, and I know will be welcomed by our customers,” Emmenis added.
Vertis Aviation is a privately owned boutique jet charter company. The operator has offices in London, Dubai, Zug and Johannesburg. Its current fleet consists of long-range charter aircraft like two Airbus ACJs, two Bombardier Global 6000s and a Bombardier Global Express.
