SkyBird Air To Operate Three VIP Dornier 328DBJs
During the Middle East business air show, MEBA, in Dubai, 328 Support Services of Germany will present its latest Dornier 328JET VIP conversion, the new 328DBJ. Three of these Dorniers are destined for a Nigerian charter operator called SkyBird Air, which recently applied for an AOC.
Update: 328 Support Services GmbH has handed over the first of three Dornier 328 jet conversions to Nigerian airline SkyBird Air. The airline, which is the first African customer for 328SSG, accepted the converted 32-seat passenger airliner at the end of February. The conversion and maintenance order, which is worth 14 million Euros in total, will see one airliner conversion and a further two 328DBJ TM s VIP aircraft added to their fleet this year. The newly converted airliner is due to be delivered to Nigeria for the airline’s inaugural operations in May, whilst the VIP models will follow in late summer 2011.
