Vertis Aviation adds 15th aircraft as Global Express joins fleet

Posted 24 August 2015 · Add Comment

Vertis Aviation has added its fourth aircraft, a Global Express, to its African portfolio six months after opening its Johannesburg office.

The twelve seat aircraft strengthens Vertis Aviation’s heavy jet offerings for both long intra- and inter-continental flights.

The classic Bombardier business jet  will be beneficial for links between south and north Africa as well as flights to Europe and the Middle East, the company said.

Jeffery Emmenis, Partner Vertis Aviation said: “The growing Vertis customer base is defined by Heads of State, ultra-high net worth individuals, and captains of industry, so we want to be sure we can provide the most suitable aircraft for their needs. The opportunity is immense which is why we have added this latest aircraft to the fleet.”

The new Global will be joining a 2015 ultra-long range Bombardier Global 6000, medium range Bombardier Learjet 45 and a Boeing 727VIP already in the Vertis Aviation fleet.

The additional aircraft will also strengthen Vertis Aviation’s north to south coverage as they operate existing offices in the UK, Switzerland, UEA and South Africa.
