As such, Jet Aviation is providing aircraft services and passenger assistance, including taxiing, handling, lavatory service, refueling, catering, customs support, service coordination and flight plan support for flight crews.

ExecuJet Middle East has been able to expand its FBO at Dubai International Airport significantly, having taken over the management of the terminal building and ground-handling operation previously run by Executive Flight Services. This gives its customers access to additional space with eight separate lounges, enlarged customs and immigration services (including electronic processing) and duty-free shopping.

The building also features a separate prayer room, a spacious arrivals area for meeting and greeting passengers, as well as a limousine drop-off area and parking.

ExecuJet Middle East operations have been based at Dubai International Airport since 1999 and it has just expanded its footprint there by taking over the former Executive Flight Services facility.

The Middle East market appears to be picking up as part of a gradual recovery from the downturn, but the turnaround is “generally slower than we would have liked,” according to Mike Berry managing director of ExecuJet Middle East.

Royal Jet, the commercial private jet concern owned by the UAE’s Presidential Flight Authority and Abu Dhabi Aviation, is planning a major fleet expansion in 2013, the year of its 10th anniversary. A defection by the nine-jet company away from Boeing, given that Royal Jet owns the world’s largest Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) fleet–six aircraft–would be a major blow for the U.S. manufacturer.

DWC Airport

Construction began on the port at Jebel Ali in 1978, but it wasn’t until around 1985 that the man-made facility–generally recognized as the bedrock of Dubai’s modern-day success–started to fulfill its potential–and the emirate’s knack for turning ideas into world-beating projects shouldn’t be underestimated.
