Complete with gold trimmings and ten private en-suite bedrooms, Emirates Airline has started taking bookings for its new luxury private jet service in an attempt to cash in on an increase in business from the Middle East, India, Russia and China.

Providing a private charter service for up to 19 passengers which will go pretty much anywhere in the world, the Airbus 319 super luxury jet includes shower spas in each of the bedrooms complete with a full height shower, floor heating system, marble trimmings and decorative screen printing on all of the mirrors.

A lounge and dining room at the front of the aircraft is furnished with two large sofas around 42 inch televisions showing up to 1,500 channels of on-demand entertainment, while a work area is available, equipped with high-speed internet, mobile phone connectivity and video conferencing facilities for anyone who needs to catch up on presentations for the office.

"Emirates Executive elevates the high standards and quality of Emirates that our customers have come to expect, with the flexibility and luxury that can only be offered by a private chartered flight," said Adnan Kazim - Emirates' divisional senior vice president - Planning, Aeropolitical & Industry Affairs.

"We have seen an increasing demand in the private travel segment, especially in the Middle East and Europe as well as in markets such as India, Russia and China, and with Emirates Executive and the launch of its website, we are looking to tap into this niche market with the high-quality of service and attention to detail associated with Emirates."

The aircraft, which was demonstrated to Sheikh Mohammed last month, is available for bookings at www.emirates-executive.com.

The news follows an announcement from Dubai based interiors contractor Depa yesterday that it had acquired jet and yacht outfitting specialist Loher Raumexklusiv in the hope of capitalising on an increase in orders from multimillionaires in the developing world.
