Jetex announces new hangar at Dubai FBO terminal


Jetex Flight Support has unveiled plans to build a 20,000 sq m hangar at its FBO terminal in Dubai, enabling it to provide customers with a complete range of trip support in one location.

The new hangar is set to be operational by 2019, and will be able to park and maintain all major aircraft types.

It is the latest addition to Jetex’s award-winning FBO facility at Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai’s South Aviation District. Since it opened in December 2016, the Jetex FBO Terminal has been the first in Dubai to receive the International Standard of Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) certification, won the FBO of the Year accolade at this year’s Aviation Business Awards, and was the official FBO of the Dubai Airshow 2017.

A second FBO facility was also opened this year, combining with the first to make more than 1,500 sq m of dedicated VIP lounge space – making the Jetex Terminal one of the largest FBO facilities in the world.

Jetex CEO and president Adel Mardini said the new hangar was an “important step” in the expansion of the company’s Dubai facility and of the services it offers 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,” he added.

His Excellency Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman of the Dubai Aviation City Corporation, said: “The signing of this 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.”
