RoyalJet tasks AMAC with upgrading two BBJs


RoyalJet has appointed AMAC Aerospace and Slash Design to deliver a fresh new VVIP look on board two of its BBJs.

Switzerland-based completion centre AMAC Aerospace will upgrade the connectivity on both aircraft. On one it will also update cabin systems and all cabin furnishings. The cabin refurbishment is based on a design conceived by Abu Dhabi-based Slash Design. RoyalJet has specified the highest quality materials to reflect its new brand identity and the experience transformation developed by Slash.

The first BBJ undergoing the connectivity upgrade is the operator’s most recently refurbished aircraft. AMAC is already nearing completion on the project at its facility in Basel. The second project, involving an upgrade, interior redesign and full refurbishment, is due to commence in the coming weeks.

High-speed connectivity

RoyalJet said these aircraft will be the third and fourth BBJs in its fleet to provide “the highest speed of inflight connectivity available on the market”. RoyalJet operates 10 aircraft, including eight BBJs. The company has its headquarters in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

“We are delighted to have our long-term partners AMAC Aerospace and Slash Design on board with us for this project, relentlessly supporting us in all our endeavours throughout our journey,” said Rob DiCastri, CEO of RoyalJet. “This is yet another testament to our unwavering commitment to deliver excellence across our fleet.”

New brand identity

“The delivery of the newly refurbished BBJ will also provide us with the opportunity to showcase our new brand identity and begin to introduce our new customer experience, designed not only for our existing client base, but also for those in search of one-of-a-kind travel solutions,” continued DiCastri. “This aircraft will further enable us to enhance our position as the global reference in premium private aviation via our ability to provide personalised delight to our guests.”

“It is with great pleasure that we welcome our esteemed client, Royal Jet, to our facilities for their fleet upgrades,” said Bernd Schramm, group chief operating officer, AMAC Aerospace. “As one of the largest Boeing fleet operators in the world, this allows us the opportunity to revitalise their aircraft, allowing clients to indulge in the premium offerings from Royal Jet. The projects are not small; they demand our best engineers and technicians, and we appreciate the opportunity to work on this exciting project. We aim to serve our clients to the best of our abilities and look forward to returning to service these premium aircraft from the Middle East.”

RoyalJet will present the newly refurbished aircraft, along with its enhanced travel experience, in private viewings for its VVIP customers at its Abu Dhabi FBO. The facility has also been redesigned recently and is currently under renovation.
