Lineage 1000. This is a great honor for Royal Jet," said Mr. Nizar Jazzar, Royal Jet's Vice

crew is now operating the Lineage 1000, and the aircraft is based in Abu Dhabi, in our
award winning FBO in the VIP terminal at the international airport. We will also be
managing the ongoing maintenance of our latest fleet addition."
The ultra-large jet is maintained and operated by Royal Jet, chosen as the leading private jet
charter company in the Middle East, since 2008, by the World Travel Awards (WTA). The
company manages a fleet of ten business jets, and will offer the Lineage 1000 to its
