Royal Jet reports 15% rise in charter business

28 July 2009

Abu Dhabi-based Royal Jet says it has recorded a 15% increase in charter bookings over the summer period compared to the same period last year. The company says there is strong demand within the GCC, with a steady stream of bookings from Qatar and, especially, Saudi Arabia, where it recently set up an alliance with Arabasco. Its charter business is also getting a boost from a new pricing policy that it introduced in the Gulf a few months ago, under which Royal Jet prices the charter from where the guests commence their flight, whereby previously it calculated its prices based on where the aircraft originated from.
