OPUL Jets launches in UK, Isle of Man and UAE

Two G-registered light jets will be hangared at London Biggin Hill Airport, as well as the Isle of Man’s Ronaldsway Airport, to be joined by additional G-registered aircraft later this year. The Global Express, on the Maltese registry, will be a ‘floating fleet’ aircraft, also available for charter out of Al Maktoum Airport in Dubai. Additional acquisitions will be confirmed over the forthcoming months, with further expansion into the Middle East and Asia also planned.

OPUL Jets was founded last year with offices and operations in London, the Isle of Man, India and Dubai, with Harry Ackerman (above) OPUL Jets’ CEO, now overseeing sales, aircraft management and charter. He has experience in the aviation sector, global trade and investment and has served private family offices in the UAE, supporting their international growth strategy in the logistics and aviation sector.

Concurrently, the Middle East has been experiencing a steady rebound post-pandemic and OPUL is an approved charter company under the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority. All OPUL's aircraft are type-rated for London City Airport, positioning the company to meet the anticipated demand and provide business travellers with access to the heart of London.

OPUL Jets’ ultra-long range Global Express is ideal for inter-continental journeys with a 6,500 nm range.  It is configured for up to 16 passengers, offering inflight connectivity with a flexible cabin to work and sleep. The iconic Learjet is ideal for short trips to Europe, with seven seats and a generous cabin.  

Clients flying OPUL Jets booking direct or via a charter brokerage can take advantage of personalised VIP concierge services and inflight catering.  Supplemental services include personalised security, chauffeur service, restaurant bookings and entertainment as detailed in its new website.  https://www.opuljets.com   

OPUL Jets is committed to sustainability, launching with its own proprietary carbon calculator, developed in partnership with Enfiniti. This will allow clients to calculate and offset their carbon footprint for each flight. Where available, OPUL will also encourage its clients to travel on blended SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel). Flight crew will also wear certified recycled apparel.

Harry Ackerman said: "We are delighted to bring OPUL Jets into the market with our owned fleet; enabling us to quickly respond to client and broker requests. We are looking forward to elevating expectations in both private aviation and luxury travel. OPUL Jets is a new member of the British Business and General Aviation Association (BBGA) and has also applied to join the Air Charter Association.
