World's First Diamond-coated Jet on Display in Dubai

Nearly 70 of the more than 1,600 wordwide airports that VistaJet’s all-Bombardier fleet has flown into are in the Middle East. Dubai is the favorite destination for customers departing from Moscow, London, Nice and Mumbai. In addition to the Global 6000 pictured, VistaJet operates Challenger 350s, 605s and 850s, plus the Global 5000.

It’s the ultimate in hard—and flashy—paint finishes. Jean Boulle Luxury (Stand 568) of Luxembourg is showcasing at the Dubai Airshow 2017 the world’s first diamond-coated business jet, making its public debut. The aircraft, a large-cabin Bombardier Global Express, is painted with aviation-grade Sun King Diamond Coating created by Jean Boulle Luxury, producing “amazing multichromatic reflections” on the aircraft, according to the company. “This is the perfect opportunity to show off the amazing impact of Sun King Diamond,” said company CEO Bertrand Boulle.

The active ingredients in the coating, launched this past May with Dutch paint and specialty coating manufacturer AkzoNobel, are ethically sourced natural gem diamonds, transformed through a proprietary process that produces a finish guaranteeing brilliance within precisely defined tolerances. Sun King Diamond Coating has previously used been used on supercars. At its stand, the company is presenting samples of the paint and a variety of color options for the coating.
