Visitors to Jeddah’s Roshana Mall are currently in for a special treat, with a full-size replica of one of the world-famous Breitling Jet Team’s L-39C Albatros aircraft currently making a flying visit to the shopping centre. Swiss luxury watchmaker and aviation chronograph specialist, Breitling is displaying the striking model alongside a Bentley Continental GT Speed in Breitling Jet Team colours to celebrate the new Breitling Boutique in Roshana Mall.

The display, which is prominently located next to the roundabout outside the new Breitling Boutique in Roshana Mall, Jeddah, was set up by Breitling and its Saudi Arabia retail partner, Abu Issa Holding. It will be in position until the end of May.

The Breitling Jet Team is comprised of seven L-39 C Albatros Jets that can reach speeds of up to 565 mph and fly within just a few feet of each other. Performing in displays around the world, it is the world’s largest professional civilian flight team and is widely recognised for its breath-taking displays, incredible speed, and flawless performance.

Sitting proudly alongside the striking jet is a Bentley Continental GT Speed which has been customised to replicate a model from the Breitling Jet Team Series. The exterior is painted in a striking duo-tone split of Hallmark and Onyx with highlights colour matched to the exact Pantone of Breitling’s unique Yellow, reflecting the trademark look of the L-39 Albatros Jets.

Commenting on the display, Aed Adwan, Breitling Middle East said: “The Jet Team is a key part of Breitling’s worldwide marketing activities and stops everyone in their tracks wherever it puts on a display. By appearing outside Roshana Mall, this particular Breitling jet is generating the same impact on the ground, and is already proving extremely popular with visitors.”
