FAI rent-a-jet AG has stated it is proud to make its debut at the fifth Bahrain International Airshow this week, Booth P32. The company will showcase its first Bombardier Challenger 850 business aircraft on the static display, Pad 8.

The aircraft (registration D-AFAN) which is the newest member in the company’s 25-strong fleet is multi-role and based at the company HQ in Nuremberg, Germany.

Available for immediate charter in 14-seat VIP aircraft configuration with three distinct cabin zones, it can also convert to a comfortable medevac transport.

Siegfried Axtmann, Chairman of FAI Aviation Group, who will be at the show this week comments: “We are very proud to make our debut at this exciting show and present our first Challenger 850 model.

It’s comfortable three-zone cabin is as roomy as a Global Express with low operating costs comparable with a Challenger 605.

This aircraft is perfect for luxury VIP travel at a competitive price and I am confident that it will appeal to potential clients in the Middle East market.”

During the show, FAI will meet with aviation delegates and aviation friends of Bahrain. FAI has 10 aircraft operating under aircraft management and looks forward to talking with potential clients about it during the show.

The company will also be promoting the expansion of FAI Technik, its dedicated and expanding maintenance division at its Nuremberg, Germany base, which specializes in Bombardier Business Jets MRO.

FAI has heightened interest in the region, having welcomed its strategic new investor from Bahrain in 2017 – The Mumtalakat Holding Company (Mumtalakat), the sovereign wealth fund of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
