In a move to offer swift, exclusive travel options to busy executives, Emirates introduced its new private jet on-demand regional charter service. Flights will be powered by the sophisticated Embraer Phenom 100 aircraft, with the capacity of accommodating up to four passengers. Emirates aims to capitalize on the rising demand for luxurious and personalized travel experiences. This exclusive operation was unveiled in earlier this month and is tailored for high-net-worth individuals and corporate executives.
The demand for business jets is expected to increase over the next decade. Honeywell International forecasts 8,500 new business jet deliveries worth $274 billion from 2023 to 2032, a 15% increase over last year’s forecast. In 2022, usage is expected to increase by 9%.
“We have been seeing positive trends in business aviation in the region, including travelers who regularly fly these types of services and a lot of new customers who are booking charters, and they have pushed the demand for private jets even further,” a representative from Emirates told Insider.
Emirates Private Jet Services Within GCC
Operating exclusively within the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC), this premier service will link domestic and international destinations. These destinations include the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates.
Emirates keeps the pricing details discreet, as it varies based on the destination, passenger count, and any special requests. However, the airline promises high-end amenities and perks, ensuring flexibility, convenience, privacy, and comfort throughout the journey. Each passenger can also enjoy one medium-sized checked bag, weighing up to 15 kilograms, in addition to their carry-on.
Upon arrival, passengers are treated to fast on-ground escorted services. VIP clearance at customs and immigration is also provided by private terminal service partners. In Dubai, for instance, customers can indulge in Emirates Chauffeur Drive Services. The private transportation service will chauffeur passengers to Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) where they’ll receive VIP treatment upon arrival.
