We have also sold over 35 aircraft in this period, helped make aircraft profitable for owners and developed a unique regional aviation HR service,” adds Sakeer.

This confidential aviation HR service remains unique and it has made a significant contribution to the development of the industry in the region. We are always on the look out for talented professionals and we are now looking ahead to the rise of low-cost airlines and expect to be working with more specialists in this field in the future.”
