El Seif chooses 'highly efficient' Challenger 605 to enhance Middle East operations
Saudi Arabia's El Seif group has added a Challenger 605 jet to its corporate fleet for executive travel between the company's diverse Middle Eastern operations.

Saudi Arabia's El Seif group has added a Challenger 605 jet to its corporate fleet for executive travel between the company's diverse Middle Eastern operations.

"Challenger aircraft have a reputation for being highly efficient jets," said the company's Khaled Al Seif.

"We already operate a Challenger 600 and a Challenger 601. Both aircraft have proven to be invaluable tools, providing superior reliability, a spacious and comfortable cabin, and all of the amenities necessary to be productive during flight. The Challenger 605 was the logical choice for our next aircraft."

El Seif is a leading privately owned group of companies in Saudi Arabia with diverse business interests worldwide. Established in 1951, the group is active in engineering and construction, healthcare, medical equipment, hospital supplies, operation and maintenance, and commercial investment, including real estate development, insurance and power generation.

The company points out that the Challenger 605 can fly five passengers non-stop from Riyadh to any European destination or as far as Beijing or Johannesburg.

Seif says: "It features a wide stand-up cabin and is equipped with the Pro Line 21 avionics suite and an all-new cabin electronics system."

Seif says the group's emphasis is on quality, efficiency, customer satisfaction and long term planning. It benefits considerably from the convenience and time savings of corporate travel.
