With travel back on the agenda, albeit in what can best be described as a piecemeal form, many companies operating in the hospitality industry are preparing for when full normality returns. One such company is Black Eagle, which has recently announced the addition of the new Bombardier Global Express to its fleet to help cater for an expected increase in travellers.
It’s frequently said and written that travel is a bit up in the air at the moment, which could be a positive thing for the private jet company Black Eagle. The company has just unveiled their latest addition to its fleet, a Bombardier Global Express and the timing couldn’t be better as the company is expecting a 27% increase in total flight hours this year due to the rising demand for private, luxury travel following the full onslaught of the global pandemic.
For those who are unfamiliar with Black Eagle, they are a private jet provider located in Istanbul. The company was founded in 2019, and it specialises in providing non-stop, flexible and luxurious private jet flight services to many destinations. The company boasts a young, dynamic and expert team and operates from a unique and key location at the junction of Europe and the Middle East.
Since its founding, Black Eagle has experienced strong growth. In addition to having a strategic location and expertise, the rising demand for private jets and private travel during the Covid-19 pandemic has been one of the tailwinds for Black Eagle.
In 2021, Black Eagle aircraft flew to more than 50 cities and 30 countries with over 500 departures, welcoming 1,086 passengers. In 2022 the company is expecting this number to increase to 1,200 passengers.
An overview of the company’s services
With high aircraft utilisation rates, flexible flight options and 24/7 operational capacity, Black Eagle offers private jet flights to a customer portfolio consisting of business people and senior bureaucrats.
Black Eagle’s fleet consists of a Global Express with 13 passenger capacity, Global Express XRS with ten passenger capacity, Challenger 604 with 12 passenger capacity, Falcon 50 with a nine-passenger capacity, and Bombardier Global 5000 with 13 passenger capacity, along with a newly added T7-EAGLE.
