Jet Aviation and its joint venture partner the Al Mulla Business Group are outfitting a new facility in the shared terminal at Dubai South, from which they will both operate.
The 600m² FBO will feature three customer lounges, a conference room, crew lounge and operations center, a large duty-free store, two prayer rooms, shower facilities and a separate sitting room for chauffeurs. Until a hangar facility at Dubai South becomes available, Jet Aviation will offer line maintenance services through the FBO and continue to provide base maintenance services through its MRO facility at Dubai International Airport.
Stefan Benz, senior vice president and general manager at Jet Aviation for MRO and FBO in EMEA and Asia, said, “We’ve had a number of recent developments in our global FBO network, but given the policy emphasis on migrating business aviation traffic through Dubai to DWC, we are very pleased to soon reopen our FBO operation at Dubai South.
“We wanted to ensure we can meet future capacity requirements without compromising style or comfort, and we look forward to welcoming customers to our newly outfitted facility at the VIP terminal.”
Jet Aviation plans to go operational at the Terminal in the third-quarter of this year, and intends to hold a grand opening at the Dubai Airshow in November.
