Posted 13 November 2017 · Add Comment

Jetex Flight Support announces plans to build its aircraft hangar at the Jetex FBO Terminal near Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai South Aviation District.

Set to be operational by 2019, the new development, encompassing 20,000m2, will feature an air-conditioned hangar fully equipped to accommodate the parking and maintenance needs of all major types of aircraft. The facility further enhances the existing terminal, the largest in the Jetex portfolio and the first in Dubai to be awarded the prestigious International Standard of Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) certification. Officially launched in December 2016, the Jetex FBO Terminal was recently announced “FBO of the Year” at the Aviation Business Awards, and will round off a highly successful first year by serving as official FBO of Dubai Airshow 2017. 

Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman, Dubai Aviation City Corporation, said: “The signing of the agreement with Jetex Flight Support to build a new hangar is testimony to Dubai South’s commitment to providing its partners and investors with an optimum platform and world-class infrastructure to grow their businesses. Our partnership with Jetex represents an innovative solution to meet future aviation needs and requirements. These plans are aligned with His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision to make Dubai the aviation capital of the world, and today’s milestone serves to corroborate this strategy.” 

The construction of the new aircraft hangar will enable the Jetex team to deliver a comprehensive range of quality and timely services.

Jetex CEO & President, Adel Mardini, said “We are excited to announce this important step in the expansion of both our flagship Dubai facility, and the spectrum of services offered by Jetex worldwide. The new hangar will allow us to deliver a complete range of trip support from one location, increasing convenience for clients and ensuring they receive maintenance services of the highest quality from a name they can trust.”
