The Gulf region continues to adopt corporate versions of the BAe 146/Avro RJ regional jetliner, generically dubbed the Avro Business Jet (ABJ). Next month, the UAE’s Abu Dhabi will take into its Amiri Flight a late-model RJ100 that will join a smaller RJ70. Other ABJs serve with the neighboring Dubai Air Wing, which operates two RJ85s. Bahrain flies a brace of RJ85s and a lone RJ100 that are assigned to its Defence Force. BAe reports placing seven corporate or VIP ABJs in the Gulf market since the beginning of last year.
