Boeing 727 VIP welcomed to Vertis Aviation’s African fleet

Switzerland-based Vertis Aviation is now offering an upgraded Boeing 727 VIP for charter. The aircraft features an Africa-inspired interior. It is operated by Fortune Air and based at Lanseria International Airport in South Africa.

The aircraft can seat 43 passengers. Its private suite comprises a bedroom and bathroom with shower, plus an office equipped with global satellite connectivity. There is also a six-place conference room, a four-place divan and four-place club seating, plus seating for 18 more passengers. The aircraft has a range of up to 3,200 nautical miles.

Vertis Aviation’s existing fleet in the region includes a new Bombardier Global 6000, a Bombardier Learjet 45 and an AW139 helicopter.

“It’s great to be expanding our portfolio in Africa,” said Jeffrey Emmenis, partner at Vertis Aviation. “The choice to bring this model into our collection reflects our unique boutique approach, which provides tailored aviation services matching the specific needs of our clients. We recognize the importance and growing demand for travel by heads of state and anticipate that it will be highly sought after by this segment of our client base for travel throughout Africa and beyond.”

In other news, Vertis Aviation has relocated its company headquarters to larger premises in Zug, Switzerland and moved its London office to TAG Farnborough Airport.
