New research from Global Jet Capital, a provider of financing solutions for large-cabin, long-range private jets, reveals that 293 mid to large private jets were delivered to the Middle East between 2006 and 2015, with an estimated combined value of over $14.65 billion.

Global Jet Capital said these aircraft typically cost between $25 million and $75 million each, and up to 80% of the funding used to purchase these is sourced through external financing.

The largest number of deliveries were to Turkey (77), followed by the United Arab Emirates (63) and Saudi Arabia (58).
