GVA: Is UAE Government Fleet Complete?

Thu Aug 15, 2002 2:22 am

Wednesday 14 August at Geneva Airport:

UAE Government fleet parked on apron:
- 1x B747-400
- 1x B767-300
- 1x A300-600
- 1x B737-BBJ

Who can tell me whether this is the entire UAE Government fleet, or should GVA expect some more??

You forgot 1x B757 (hospital for the king), some L15, and some MD90. All these planes took off on August 14 from Geneva.

Dens, you are thinking of the Saudia Royal fleet. The UAE is a different place.

The UAE Government have:

5 BBJs
1 BBJ2
1 A319CJ
1 A300-600
1 Gulfstream 4
3 747sp
1 767-300
1 747-400

These all belong to the UAE government in some way. Some are based in different places and are operated by different parts of the government, but all are UAE aircraft. Isn't it nice to be rich!!

I wish I hadn't read this thread. I'm so depressed now.

I'm not a real aeronautical engineer, I just play one on Airliners.net.

I was in GVA this morning and saw the UAE 763 taking off + 1 Gulfsream folowing him.

Always amazing to see how many aircrafts they own. They just live in another world...
