Emperor Aviation, part of the Aim of Emperor group, has taken delivery of a Gulfstream G450. The aircraft was repainted and refurbished at the OEM's facility in Savannah, Georgia, US. It will be marketed exclusively by LL Jets, another subsidiary of the Aim of Emperor group.
Founder and owner Irakli Litanishvili states: “The G450 is an ideal aircraft for those who don't want to take the middle path. Gulfstream business jets are highly appreciated by business travellers all over the world. Now its safety and unprecedented comfort is available for our charter programme passen-gers in Russia, CIS and Europe.”
Having arrived on the market in December, the G450 is already enjoying demand to destinations including Switzerland, Austria and Italy, as well as domestic routes in Russia. “Passengers choose our G450 for its comfort and flexible price,” continues Litanishvili. “The jet has two club seating arrangements, a dining area and a fully-equipped kitchen. For those whose personal space is a priority, the G450 has a zone with two comfortable sofas surrounded by curtains. If desired, the sofas can be laid out in a comfortable, wide bed designed for two people. Leather chairs can also be transformed into sleeping places, and there are five of those onboard.
“Despite its large capacity and ability to accommodate 16 passengers, they will not feel discomfort in flight due to the ergonomic design of the interior, its light bedding and the huge signature windows of Gulfstream.”
According to the company's research, charter flights in the Russian market have risen by nine per cent in 2017 compared to the previous year. The most popular destinations were Nice, London and Olbia, while the most requested business jets types were heavy jets and midsize.
