“Having been in the business for over 30 years helps” says Peter Fried CEO, but at the end it is all about people. The most important criteria for us when choosing our employees, beside the professional qualifications, is their ability to work as a member of a small team. Fun and team spirit do not exclude professionalism, rather the contrary.” The G5 Executive team is multilingual and multicultural with 10 different nationalities.
All age groups are hosted on-board the aircraft, so far the youngest passenger was a newborn baby, the oldest a charming lady with more than 90 years of life experience. The guests have different religions and cultures, a flight attendant needs to be qualified to host a Japanese business man or a rabbi, an African king with an entourage, a Russian tycoon, or a family with seven children. It is important to provide all guests a safe and discreet and luxurious environment when they are flying, the onboard service is tailor made to each guests wishes and requirements.
The G5 product is all crafted in-house, once a flight has been sold, the dispatch office with latest available technology continues the work. They route the aircraft, apply for over flight permissions and landing rights and pre organise the formalities upon arrival.
