Turkey's MNG Jet Havacilik AS has ordered a Global 5000. "The aircraft is the perfect addition to our current fleet," says Mehmet Nazif Gunal, president.
"It combines speed and range with unparalleled comfort and 0luxury and will substantially enhance our business offering as well as provide an effective and important business tool for our own travel requirements."
Founded in 2008, MNG Jet is a member of the MNG Group. The company currently operates a Challenger 601 aircraft and performs maintenance for executive jets.
Gunal says: "MNG Jet is expanding its business aviation services to include aircraft management, operations and spare parts distribution."
The Global 5000, he adds, combines superior transatlantic speed with a spacious cabin. "It features high speed internet connectivity and unmatched entertainment options as well as a head-up flight display system, with one of the largest fields-of-view of any business aircraft.
"With a recent range increase of 400 nm it can now connect Istanbul-New York, and Istanbul-Seoul non-stop with eight passengers and three crew."
Gunal adds: "Operators of commercial fleets today have to seriously consider investing in business jets to meet very particular and demanding corporate needs. Once this need is established it is simply a matter of ensuring we have the right aircraft to meet or surpass our requirements."
