FAL takes on first Saudi Legacy 650
FAL Aviation, a privately owned subsidiary of FAL Group based in Riyadh, has purchased and taken delivery of a Legacy 650.

FAL Aviation, a privately owned subsidiary of FAL Group based in Riyadh, has purchased and taken delivery of a Legacy 650.

Owned by Sheik Fahad Al Athel, the company was one of the first operators of the super midsize Legacy 600 in 2003 and now it has become the first to fly the Legacy 650 in Saudi Arabia. Complementing the 600, the 650 has longer range which will allow FAL Aviation to fly non-stop from Riyadh to London or Beijing.

"For us, the Legacy 650 was the natural upgrade of the 600 to fit our needs in terms of extended range," says Sheik Fahad Al Athel. "Both our Legacy aircraft combine luxury, large baggage volume, innovation and operating efficiency, and will afford our clients journeys that are as fast and pleasant as possible."
