Dubai’s FIVE Hotels and Resorts has introduced a new private jet charter service using its own jet.
The aircraft, 9H-FIVE, pronounced Nine-Hotel FIVE, will be based in Dubai and is now available for private charters. It has a flying range of approximately 12 hours which means that it can fly to the whole of Europe from Dubai, and also to the majority of destinations in Africa and Asia.
The ACJ TwoTwenty jet was developed by Swiss aviation company Comlux. It features 16 seats, a dining table for eight passengers, a master suite with a king-sized bed, and in-flight music too.
Additionally, its cabin also boasts of high-speed wifi connectivity, a kitchen, an on-board shower and 55-inch TV screens.
The 73 sqm of floor space in the jet can be divided into different areas including a dinging zone, business lounge and cinema room.
FIVE said that it is committed to completely offsetting FLY FIVE’s annual emissions. To that end, it has aligned itself with Nature-Based Carbon Credits, becoming a direct proponent of rainforest preservation and reforestation. By purchasing credits attached to forest conservation projects, FIVE will take steps to safeguard critical biodiversity. Costs for the carbon credits are reportedly included in the charter fees.
“FIVE has the experimental spirit of the modernist vanguard, thus Fly FIVE is an exciting evolution of FIVE’s award-winning disruptive hospitality ethos,” says Aloki Batra, CEO of FIVE Hospitality. “With this customised, ultra-luxe, immersive private jet experience like no other, FIVE is once again delivering an elevated – and electric – customer experience for a worldwide diaspora.”
