Execujet expands to create biggest FBO in Middle East
ExecuJet Middle East is expanding the company's fixed-based operations (FBO) at Dubai International Airport to cope with increasing demand by taking over the largest dedicated business aviation terminal in the Middle East.
From October 1, the Dubai ExecuJet FBO will include the terminal building previously managed by Executive Flight Service (EFS) and will offer additional lounge space, expanded customs and immigration services, including e-gate services and duty-free shopping.
In a further service enhancement, ExecuJet will henceforth manage all ground handling for aircraft using the company’s Dubai FBO facilities.
Mike Berry, managing director, ExecuJet Middle East, said: “We are very excited about this significant expansion to our Dubai FBO. The additional 12,300 sq ft of terminal space will allow us to efficiently grow our business by up to 50% whilst ensuring service levels are improved to meet customer expectations. We will also be investing in airside vehicles including limousines and baggage vehicles, as well as extra ramp-side equipment.
“Our introduction of full ground handling services in Dubai is another important development, giving us an enhanced level of control over aircraft arrivals and departures.
This change will enable ExecuJet to offer an even more efficient service to passengers and crew.”
The newly acquired terminal includes eight lounges and a spacious arrivals zone with guest ‘meet and greet’ areas.
ExecuJet will also offer dedicated VIP parking and convenient limousine drop-off and pick-up access.
Located at Dubai Airport Free Zone, ExecuJet’s FBO offers internet access, telephone and general business facilities, a separate prayer room and a range of refreshments and reading material. The building is also fully equipped to provide visiting flight crew with business facilities and rest areas.
