But it is not resting on its laurels.

During the slowdown of air travel due to the Covid pandemic, RoyalJet has undergone a transformation exercise that has seen refurbishment of the luxury private terminal and FBO at Abu Dhabi, restyling of the aircraft interiors and urgrades to connectivity to give passengers the fastest internet connection in the air.

There are still new horizons and new challenges as CEO Rob DiCastri explains to Alan Peaford in this TATV Insight programme.

With the reopening of tourism markets, RoyalJet sees opportunities in major events – especially the Formula One grand prix in Abu Dhabi. But its an event in Dubai that has led the operator to a new base in the emirate.
