A newly painted, teal blue and white Bombardier Global 6000 flew in to EBACE 2024, showcasing a stylish new interior from leading British yacht designer Andrew Winch.

The aircraft is operated under the AOC of Alliance Executive Jets, part of the Alliance Aviation Group, of Ireland.

It landed in Geneva having been freshly painted by General Atomics in Oberphaffenhofen, Germany.

Together with its new paint and interior, the 6,000nm aircraft, which seats 12, has been fitted with Ka-band by Satcom Direct, an upgrade from SBB.  

Its interior was produced by F/List in Austria and Berlin, Germany, and fitted out at London Biggin Hill airport, coinciding with a 120-month maintenance inspection at Bombardier’s neighbouring facility.

Featured on the aircraft’s exterior, in what was said to be an industry first for a business aviation show, was a QR code highlighting its carbon capture. When scanned, the code shows which trips have been carbon offset, and which have not.

Alliance Executive Jets has operated the aircraft since September 2020, entering service just as Covid struck. Since that time it has logged some 2,000 charter flying hours. Its home base is Alliance’s new Dublin airport MRO/FBO facility, but it is a floating aircraft and is now available for charter from Geneva after its EBACE showing.  

Accountable manager at Alliance Executive Jets is Malta-based Adrian Spiteri. He was at EBACE together with a team led by group CEO Brendan McQuaid.
