AVIAÂ, the international group purchasing organization (GPO) for business aviation, is expanding its presence in the Middle East with the signing of a new preferred supplier partnership with Jetex.
The partnership begins with launching exclusive savings on full business aircraft handling through select FBOs in Jetex’s global network.
The agreement opens up a wealth of savings for AVIAÂ members, located primarily in the USA and Europe, when using Jetex FBOs in the Middle East and selected European locations.
AVIAÂ business development director Matt Smith signed the partner agreement with Adel Mardini, CEO and president of Jetex Flight Support, at its flagship VIP Dubai South, Dubai World Central Airport FBO on December 9, the eve of the biannual MEBAA 2018 Show.
Smith commented, “We are delighted to be entering the exciting and prosperous Middle East region, in partnership with such a well-respected and large business aviation player. This is our first year attending MEBAA and we’re thrilled to be able to ratify the partnership here, in person, ahead of the region’s premier business aviation show.”
Mardini said, “This is a first for us to be working with an innovative disruptor like AVIAÂ. We have seen the traction they have quickly built up with their membership in the USA and Europe after just 18 months and are now pleased to be collaborating with them as a supplier partner.
“We recognize it is a valuable path to help broaden and widen the Jetex offering among business aviation operators.”
