November 22, 2017
Jet Aviation, together with its joint venture partner the Al Mulla Business Group, will celebrate the opening of its new FBO facility in the shared terminal at Dubai South during the 2017 Dubai Airshow. The company is hosting a Grand Opening at the FBO following the second day of business on November 13, 2107.
“We are firmly committed to our customers in Dubai and the region, which our new Dubai South FBO demonstrates,” said Hardy Butschi, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO operations in Dubai. “We also continue operating our award-winning MRO and FBO facilities at Dubai International Airport (DXB), and are extending our (DXB) maintenance approvals to support line maintenance services through the Dubai South FBO.”
As business aviation traffic is increasingly channeled through DWC, the upscale 600-square meter FBO in the shared VIP terminal adds considerable capacity for Jet Aviation to meet customer requirements now and into the future. The new state-of-the-art facility features three customer lounges, a conference room, crew lounge and operations center, two prayer rooms and shower facilities.
“Since opening in 2005, we have handled more than 25,000 aircraft in Dubai and were voted Best FBO in the Middle East & Africa in Professional Pilot magazine for the 7th time this year,” said Stefan Benz, SVP Regional Operations, EMEA & Asia. “We are very pleased to begin operations at Dubai South and look forward to welcoming customers to our new FBO where they can expect to receive the highest quality services in the comfort and style to which they are accustomed with Jet.”
Both Jet Aviation FBOs in Dubai have been audited and approved for registration to the IS-BAH™ Standard.
