Qatar was established in 1971, it covers an area of 11,437 sq km, its population is 618,000, its capital city is Doha, and its official language is Arabic. In recent years, Qatar has modernized very rapidly, being funded by oil, and the world's largest natural gas field. Qatar is where "Al Jazeera," the powerful, global Arabic-language, TV news network is based.
Situated halfway up the western shore of the Arabian Gulf, Qatar is almost completely surrounded by sea. It borders Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the south, and Bahrain in the northwest. Well-preserved natural and historical sites, coupled with top-caliber business, sports, dining, shopping, and accommodation facilities, render Qatar the perfect gateway to the Arabian Gulf. The commercial and administrative center, Doha, hosts the international airport, seaport, hotels, and sports facilities. Doha is built around a beautiful bay, along which there is a 7 km long corniche lined with lush gardens. Today, Doha's cosmopolitan spirit strikes a perfect balance with its rich cultural and religious heritage. Qatar's economy is very strong, due to its abundance of oil and natural gas reserves. This means that there is significant ongoing investment being made into the local infrastructure to support high standards of living and the successful development of tourism. The terrain is generally flat. However, there are some hills and sand dunes, which reach an altitude of 40 meters above sea level in the areas of Dukhan and Jebel Fuwairit in the western and northern parts of the country and Khor Al-Udeid in the south. Qatar has a desert climate of hot summers and relatively warm winters. In the summer, the temperature ranges between 25 and 46 degrees centigrade. Rainfall in the winter is minimal, and on average, does not exceed 75.2mm. per year.
The Qataris are descended through ancient Arabian lines of kinship. This is due to the country's geographical location and proximity to the Arabian Peninsula, on one hand, and to the close historical heritage, which the State shares with the rest of the States of the Arabian peninsula, on the other. The present population is estimated at 900,000 inhabitants, most of whom reside in Doha, the capital city. The rest of the population is scattered among a number of towns and villages including Dukhan, Mesaieed, Al-Wakrah, Al-Khor, Madinat Al-Shamal, and other modern residential centres. Islam is the official religion of the State of Qatar and Shari'a (Islamic Law) is the principal source of legislation in the country, while Arabic is the official language.
In spite of the changes that took place in the world oil market in 1991, as a result of the conditions that prevailed in 1990, notably the Gulf crisis; the disintegration of the Soviet Union, increased concern over environment protection, and continued effort by industrial nations to rationalize energy consumption, Qatar's national economy has once again lent proof to the vitality and soundness of its basic structure and ability to stand firm in the face of an unstable world economy. Qatar's enormous gas reserves have been the main source of national income. Since the inauguration of the new oil refinery in 1983, the country has realized self sufficiency in oil products. It is worth mentioning that Qatar has one of the world's three largest gas reserves and LNG export began at the end of the 1996. However, the State has not confined its aspirations just to that. It has been following a policy based on the principle of diversifying the sources of national income through expanding industrial and agricultural production bases, developing human resources, assigning a bigger role to the private sector, working to realize a surplus in the balance of payments by increasing exports and decreasing imports, and reducing the State's national budget deficit by applying necessary financial and monetary policies and corrective program, in order to achieve reasonable growth rates.
Today, a number of international companies and agencies have begun opening branches in Qatar, aware that it is a profitable and efficient place to do business and take advantage of the tremendous opportunities.
December 2011: Rizon Jet (RZJ) is a charter executive and public charter jet airplane operator offering services from Doha, Qatar and London Biggin Hill, United Kingdom to any destination in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and Asia.
(ICAO) Code: RZJ - (Callsign - RIZON JET).
Main Base: Doha International Airport, Qatar.
Secondary Base: London Biggin Hill Airport, United Kingdom.
January 2012: Middle East and UK-based business aviation services company, Rizon Jet (RZJ) has announced that it has appointed Harold Stoddard as Acting (CEO). Leading a new management team, Mr Stoddard will prepare (RZJ) for the next phase of its strategic development. Qatar-based parent company, Ghanim bin Saad Al Saad and Sons Group Holdings (GSSG Holdings) has already invested $50 million to set up infrastructure for Rizon Jet (RZJ) in London and Doha.
At the Biggin Hill terminal, (RZJ) has carried over >2000 passengers and handled in excess of >450 jet airplane movements since May 2011. Due to this impressive growth, (RZJ) is confident of being fully ready for the anticipated increase of business brought by the 2012 London Olympic Games. The company has been preparing by revamping its management team and extending the range of jet airplane services offered, in particular by securing approvals for the management and maintenance of a number of new jet airplane models.
(RZJ)’s Biggin Hill facility will be increasing capacity to cope with the expected demand in 2012. In the run-up to the Games, (RZJ) will work with its London partners to offer its clients a helicopter service and a (VIP) limousine service, and will also be launching a community initiative in the coming months to train London students as tour guides for (VIP) guests during the Olympics.
(RZJ)’s Doha Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO) facility is in the final stages of securing (EASA) base maintenance approvals for the Bombardier Global series, Challenger series and Hawker series jet airplanes. In the coming year, (RZJ) Doha plans to secure additional approvals for Bermuda, the (UAE) and Saudi Arabia. The Qatar Air Operator Certificate (AOC) will also be taking on private management of an A319CJ and a new Bombardier Global 6000 in 2012.
Acting CEO, Harold Stoddard commented on the change of management, saying, “The previous management team did a wonderful job in building the foundation and facilities that will enable Rizon Jet (RZJ) to deliver on its commitment to excellence. Our focus is now shifting from the start-up phase to running of the (VVIP) Executive Terminal, Maintenance Facility and Aircraft Management/Charter Operation.”
Mr Stoddard added, “Our strategy remains the same and that is to provide 7-star service in everything we do; whether providing unparalleled world class executive passenger handling facilities and services, providing jet airplane charter services that focus on the customer's experience, managing airplanes, while ensuring the integrity of the asset’s value is maximized or maintaining business jets to standards that exceed industry norms.”
(RZJ)’s Biggin Hill (MRO) holds (EASA) and Qatar base maintenance approvals, in addition to recent approvals for Aruba, Bermuda, and Cayman, for several jet airplane types including the Bombardier Global series, Challenger Series, Hawker 125 XP series, as well as the Beech 390 Premier 1/1A and Cessna 560 Citation series. The company also plans to secure approvals for the Airbus A319CJ airplane in early 2012.
