Rizon brings Hawker and Challenger on stream

Rizon, which plans to base five jets in Doha, Qatar, and another in London, is working towards a February 2010 completion of its new US$16 million 13,000 sq m hangar and FBO terminal facility at London Biggin Hill.

Group ceo Patrick Enz confirms: "The change in management and our simultaneous commitment to a parallel hangar and FBO and vip terminal development in Doha, due to open in the second quarter of 2010, means that we are a little bit later than originally scheduled, but both projects are advancing well." The latest additions to the Doha-based fleet are a Hawker 900XP and a Challenger 605 and Rizon has also been bolstering its management team in the UK and Qatar, ahead of significant recruitment of staff.

Jackie Nikolajsen, gm at the Biggin Hill facility, joins from ExecuJet Europe, where he was technical director based in Denmark. In Doha Faisal Alam, former head of maintenance and development at Bahrain-based BexAir and former chief operating officer of Delmun Aviation Services, is newly-named gm. Andrew Pearce, who joined Rizon UK in May from TAG Aviation as director sales and marketing, has been promoted to Rizon group head of aircraft management and charter. A head of marketing and communications has been chosen and Rizon is currently recruiting for a finance director. Both positions will be based in Doha.

Rizon, which also has offices in Bahrain and the UAE is targeting business in India, Russia, Africa and the Far East as well as the Middle East and Europe.
