Czech operator ABS Jets has added a factory-new Gulfstream G650 to its Prague-based fleet, taking its roster to 11 heavy and ultra long range aircraft. The aircraft is the first G650 to be Czech-registered and will not be available for charter.

ABS Jets' G650 can accommodate up to 19 passengers and is equipped with high thrust Rolls-Royce BR725 AI-12 engines, enabling it to fly for more than 12 hours without refuelling.

Passengers will be able to travel non-stop from Prague to Rio de Janeiro in a 2.59 metre wide cabin with four living areas, including a crew rest area, private stateroom, conference area and entertainment space. The aircraft is also equipped with the fastest version of Ka-band internet for swift connectivity.

The operator is well-versed in Embraer aircraft, and a few years ago it added a pair of G550s as an introduction to Gulfstream.

“Our team was involved in the entire process, including the purchase, registration and delivery of this G650,” says COO Jan Kralik. “We are happy to welcome the aircraft into our fleet after months of preparation and we are looking forward to providing the best possible support in the air and on the ground.”
