Doha, Qatar-based charter operator Rizon Jet has announced that it has received FAA Part 129 certification for foreign air carriers, thus permitting unrestricted commercial operations into and within the U.S. Rizon Jet CEO Hassan Al-Mousawi noted that applying for the certification was a response to “an increasing customer demand for transatlantic flights.” Rizon Jet has additional operating bases in the Middle East and the UK.
Rizon Jet is considering legal action in its bid to overturn efforts by Qatar’s Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA) to prevent it from providing handling for third-party operators at its Doha International Airport headquarters. The Qatari company has claimed that after supporting its 2011 investment of approximately $137 million in a new private terminal, the CAA then ordered it not to use this facility for third-party handling.
Qatar-based Rizon Jet says the country’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is unfairly blocking the company’s plans to expand its business aviation services. The privately owned group charged on Tuesday that it is “facing hindrances that make it impossible to sustain a viable business in Qatar.”
Doha-based Rizon Jet has become a founding member of The Luxury Network Qatar, which brings together a select group of companies and high-end service providers. The Luxury Network Qatar will be launched officially early next year in Rizon Jet’s VIP terminal at Doha.

Both the UK and Qatar facilities will provide handling support and they plan to extend their maintenance portfolios. Both facilities have been designed expressly to meet the preferences of the growing number of Middle Eastern business aircraft users.
