Jet Aviation Dubai opens FBO at Al Maktoum International Airport Dubai World Central

Posted 15 February 2013 · Add Comment

Jet Aviation Dubai has officially opened its new FBO facility at Dubai World Central's Al Maktoum International Airport. The company continues to provide MRO and FBO services at Dubai International Airport.

Jet Aviation was granted permission to permanently operate an FBO at Dubai World Central’s (DWC) Al Maktoum International Airport following its appointment as the dedicated ground handling service provider for the Middle East Business Aviation (MEBA) exhibition in December 2012. The company will continue to provide maintenance and FBO operations at Dubai International Airport, the other international airport in Dubai. 

For passengers and crew members, Jet Aviation’s FBO at Al Maktoum International Airport provides 24/7 handling services such as immigration and customs support, crew transportation, hotel reservations and catering coordination. Aircraft services include taxiing, luggage handling, lavatory drainage and aircraft refueling service for which all Jet Aviation FBO and MRO customers in EMEA receive preferential rates. 

Amenities at the facility include two new customer lounges. 

“Aircraft at Al Maktoum International Airport are not subject to any parking or slot restrictions and business aviation traffic is increasingly being diverted there,” says Michael Rucker, vice president and general manager at Jet Aviation Dubai. “With the opening of this FBO facility, we can now better meet the needs of our customers in the region, whether at Dubai World Central or Dubai International Airport.”
