Expanding EAS hosts Jana's Global 5000 in Beirut
Jana Aviation has acquired a new Global 5000 jet, and placed it under management with Executive Aircraft Services in Beirut.

Jana Aviation has acquired a new Global 5000 jet, and placed it under management with Executive Aircraft Services in Beirut.

"We are very proud to welcome the Global 5000 aircraft into the fleet of aircraft we manage," says Captain Nicolas Meszaros, general manager of EAS. "Global aircraft have a reputation for providing the highest levels of performance and comfort, and we're confident that this new jet will provide our customers with the exceptionally high standards of service that they rely on."

Previously, Jana Aviation used a Global Express XRS, which has since been re-registered in Denmark to Lukoil. "We are delighted that Jana Aviation has continued to place their trust in Bombardier aircraft for their operations in Lebanon," says Khader Mattar, regional vp sales, Middle East, Africa and India for Bombardier Business Aircraft. "The Global 5000 jet is perfectly suited for the very discerning needs of our customers in the Middle East."

EAS was founded in 2003 and employs a team of 70 people out of Beirut's general aviation terminal and its own hangar. The company says it is Beirut's leading FBO and claims 60 per cent market share in handling, and opened an extended vip lounge in March this year.

EAS manages a fleet of ten aircraft and owns one Hawker 800XP fully available for charter. The managed fleet comprises two Hawker 700, two Hawker 800XP, a Hawker 850XP, a Legacy, a Challenger 300, a Falcon 900B, a Hawker 900XP (since January) and the newly-arrived Global 5000. Only the company's own Hawker 800XP and one of the managed Hawker 700s are available for charter.
