MEBA2012: The Boutsen formula is one for success

Posted 13 December 2012 · Add Comment

Exhibiting for the first time at MEBA this year is Monaco-based Boutsen Aviation, the brainchild of former Formula One racing driver Thierry Boutsen and his wife Daniela.

In the past year the corporate aircraft sales and acquisitions company, set up by the couple in 1997, has become a regular at the region’s airshows, exhibiting at the  Dubai Airshow and Abu Dhabi Air Expo.

“The Middle East is becoming a more and more important region for us so we are here at MEBA to meet people,” said Boutsen. “We have an aircraft on the static display, a Falcon 7X, owned by one of our customers, which we are trying to sell.”

Yesterday the company announced the appointment of Karim Hijazi as the sales representative based in Dubai as well as the sale of its 250th aircraft to a Russian customer.

“We are buying and selling aircraft worldwide, any kind of jet or helicopter, and if people are interested to know about us or to buy or sell an aircraft, whether it’s a new or used one, we can help them,” said Boutsen. “We have the experience, we have the know-how.”

Boutsen Aviation is also at MEBA to promote its new corporate aircraft design department. “We provide everything that is needed inside an aircraft to make life comfortable, all the accessories and amenities,” said Boutsen.

Boutsen Design was launched by Daniela Boutsen at last November’s Dubai Airshow. Daniela has teamed up with the most prestigious luxury brands in porcelains, glassware, cutlery, bed and table linen, bathroom essentials and accessories and offers a full personalisation of the items.

“It’s a one stop shop for aircraft interior equipment,” said Boutsen. “That means that anything you like, anything you need inside an aircraft, we can provide it. You don’t have to go shopping with 10 different shops.”
