Air Taxis should offer flexibility and comfort, which is why we operate a fleet of Cessna 208 Caravan aircraft. Each has been individually customised for amphibian use, opening up dozens of water landing strips and enhancing the on-board experience.
Our seaplanes have capacity for nine passengers with luggage and every Air Taxi is only for you and your invited guests.
Cruising above the Middle East is a special experience, blending iconic cityscapes with inspiring desert and the glistening tones of the gulfs. Every passenger enjoys sublime uninterrupted views, ensuring aerial sightseeing comes as standard on every Air Taxi flight.
A Serene Journey
Seaplane engines sound very different to helicopter propellers. Unlike a chopper, there's no need to wear padded noise-silencing headphones. The seaplane engine is soft and serene, with the resonance similar to the experience of flying in an Airbus 380. Passengers are able to easily converse during the flight and there's never any need to shout above the engine.
Back in the 1930s, seaplanes were the pinnacle of luxury travel, reserved for the elite of society. Jet-ops has revived seaplane travel, maintaining the same dedication to luxury and comfort while broadening its accessibility to new audiences. With every Air Taxi you enjoy a tranquil journey through the sky, often accompanied by the elegance of touching down on the water.
Customised Amphibian Aircraft
The flexibility of our Cessna 208 Caravans has been enhanced by adding the amphibian touch. The aircraft have been specially converted into seaplanes, opening up the possibility of touching down on water. These rugged aircraft are ideal for the demands of the Middle East, able to operate anytime during daylight hours and use a huge range of central landing locations along the Arabian Gulf and Gulf of Oman. However, the innovation doesn't impact their ability to use traditional runways, enabling unique routes from water to airport and vice versa. Typically, our aircraft cruise at 1500 feet, an altitude that reduces travel time and ensures intimate vistas from every seat.
We currently operate a fleet of Cessna 208 Caravans that have been custom-made to provide all passengers with uninterrupted aerial sightseeing over the Emirates. You avoid laborious land journeys through the desert as well as the city. For example, Dubai to Sir Bani Yas Island takes just 75 minutes by Air Taxi, while travel to the Musandam Peninsula is made easy from anywhere on the eastern coast of the UAE.
Every seat has its own personal viewing window, a customised extra that was specifically created for the Air Taxi fleet. It’s always a beautiful journey, the enchantment of Arabia coming together beneath the wingtips. These seaplane charters are fully customised for every client and every engagement. Charters includes customising routing (if required), pre-flight refreshments, plus the unique experience of taking off and landing on the water. With dozens of departure locations to choose from, an exclusive seaplane flight is a fusion of memorable air tour and convenient aerial transfer.
