Jet Aviation to operate its FBO from the shared terminal at Dubai South

Posted 31 May 2017 · Add Comment

Jet Aviation, together with its joint venture partner the Al Mulla Business Group, is outfitting a brand new facility in the shared terminal at Dubai South. The company plans its DWC FBO to go operational at the VIP Terminal in Q3 2017.

Jet Aviation and Al Mulla Business Group are outfitting a brand new facility in the shared terminal at Dubai South. Jet Aviation plans to go operational at the world’s largest purpose-built VIP Terminal in Q3 2017, and intends to hold a Grand Opening at the Dubai Airshow in November 2017.

The up-scale 600-square meter FBO will feature three customer lounges, a conference room, crew lounge and operations center, two prayer rooms, shower facilities and a separate sitting room for chauffeurs. A large Duty Free store is also located at the executive terminal. Until a hangar facility at Dubai South becomes available, the company will offer line maintenance services through the FBO and continue to provide base maintenance services through its MRO facility at Dubai International Airport. 

“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,” said Stefan Benz, senior vice president and general manager, MRO and FBO, EMEA and Asia. “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.”
