Rizon Jet plans a Challenger and Hawker fleet for all seasons
Bahrain-based Rizon Jet is investing US$15 million in a U.K. base but believes a major driver for business for its expanding fleet based on Challengers and Hawkers will come from the East.

Bahrain-based Rizon Jet is investing US$15 million in a U.K. base but believes a major driver for business for its expanding fleet based on Challengers and Hawkers will come from the East.

The busy period in the Gulf is from November through to May and conversely the busiest period in Europe is April to October, says ceo William Curtis. "So we envisage moving aircraft and crews from one region to the other to meet seasonal demand. This will make our operation much more efficient in terms of capacity management and consequently enhance ultimate returns."

Curtis adds: "We will also operate out of the Gulf to the developing economies such as India, China and Asia. We expect to see substantial growth in investment in these areas as the U.S. and European economies cool. The mood of business in the Gulf is very much eastward facing. However we also think there will be a continuing demand for business aviation in Europe due to leisure related travel as much as business related travel."

Rizon Jet's parent company, Rizon Group Holdings, has secured a long lease on land at London Biggin Hill Airport that enables an immediate start on construction work. "This landmark expansion which will link our Middle East operations with Europe and enhance the service we are able to offer clients traveling to and from London." Rizon Jet is currently negotiating for further aircraft although these won't enter service until early in the next decade. "We are also looking carefully at new designs, such as the Learjet 85. We try for new aircraft wherever possible."
