Abu Dhabi-based operator RoyalJet and Jetex have sealed a partnership to operate on-demand private jet flights between Dubai and Doha during the FIFA World Cup championship, from 20 November to 18 December, 2022.

RoyalJet has a fleet of 11 Boeing Business Jets, offering bespoke VIP configuration, the latest technology and a spacious 30 seat cabin that offers every comfort for the short flight between the two cities.

CEO Mohammed Husain Ahmed says: “The partnership with Jetex enables RoyalJet to fulfil tourism demand during this exciting period in the GCC’s history. Customers will experience the very best in-flight experience on board the world-class RoyalJet fleet, coupled with Jetex’s superb private terminal and on-the-ground facilities.”

At the Jetex VIP terminal at Al Maktoum International airport in Dubai, passengers can enjoy priority access and hospitality, and even a pop-up football field. The Jetex team takes care of all pre-flight formalities and passengers are ready to depart within minutes of their arrival at the airport.

Jetex founder and CEO Adel Mardini adds: “This new, unprecedented and significant partnership with RoyalJet is the reflection of our high ambitions: embracing industry synergies to offer new services that keep customers at the centre. Combining our best-in-class private terminal with the private charter expertise of RoyalJet will take us forward. The new opportunities offered to our customers are exactly what our teams are working for at Jetex: a unique and unforgettable experience.”

The return itinerary is priced at just under $8,000 per seat.
