Vertis and Privatjet team to bring Global 6000 to African charter market

Posted 3 July 2018 · Add Comment

Swiss-based, boutique long-range charter specialist, Vertis Aviation has teamed with Privajet to market a privately owned, Sub-Saharan-based, Bombardier Global 6000 for international charter and will be targeting the sub-Saharan market.


The aircraft is the first Bombardier type to be registered on the Privajet Maltese AOC and when the aircraft begins operations at the end of July, Vertis will collaborate with Privajet to provide marketing and promotional services to support international charter activity.
With a range of over 6000 nautical miles and speeds of up to Mach 0.89, the companies said their Sub-Saharan base will appeal to African corporations and governments demanding intra-continental travel not well served by local airlines, international conglomerates seeking to navigate the complex African skies efficiently, and high-net-worth individuals requiring comfortable, multi-leg, inter-continental trips. Regular routes are likely to include Lagos to Houston, Cape Town to London and Luanda to Singapore.
Designed to suit either business or leisure needs the 14 business class seats include a forward four place club and four place conference seating arrangement, in addition to an aft three place divan with complementary two seat club formation. The seats convert into sleeping places for up to six passengers. The elegantly appointed cabin’s rich chocolate and cream palette is complemented by brushed nickel metals on lights, side ledges and controls. SwiftBroadband connectivity supports always-on voice, internet and data to power communication, entertainment and information needs.
“We have experienced a real uptick in African business in the last 12 months which is being driven by stronger commodity prices, increased political stability and the growing demand for newer charter aircraft. With this aircraft added to our unique portfolio clients have access to a beautiful long-range, large cabin jet that we know will be managed and operated by Privajet to the highest standards. This will appeal to many of our clients, not just in Africa but around the globe,” said Jeffrey Emmenis, partner, Vertis Aviation.
“Africa is a market where we know the potential is enormous and Vertis is well positioned to exploit this,” said Jerome Franier, commercial director, Privajet.
